Knife and Spook play together and mysterious Fork steals a toy.

How did you come up with the idea for your two main characters, Knife and Spoon?  Where do they live?
I came up with the story using my imagination.  Knife and Spoon live in a grand apartment.

Will Knife and Spoon have any more adventures together soon?
Yes, they will have more adventures, they might explore the woods soon.

Thank you for sharing this story with WSKG! How did you hear about the Contest?
My older brothers have been entering for a few years, so I was excited to be able to enter this year too.

I liked making the drawings the best.
