Description

A nighttime adventure begins when two friends share a cup of tea—by diving in off a teaspoon! They row sugar cubes to shore, slide down a teapot spout, and skate on a plate of cookies in a land of sweet surprises. The lilting rhyming text and gorgeous illustrations make Teatime a classic storybook that brings to mind the poems of A Child’s Garden of Verses.

Excerpt: Teatime (by (author) Tiffany Stone; illustrated by Jori van der Linde)

"Please join me in a cup of tea.
There’s lots of room, as you can see.
It’s not too hot and nice and deep.
So climb right in—or take a leap—
right off a teaspoon diving board.
The milky depths lie unexplored."
