 The Adventures of Forkman: What’s That Noise includes Chapter 3 and 4 of The Adventures of Forkman series. In this cute hardback, Forkman, an accommodating kitchen utensil, gives young Kathryn and William pointers on properly loading dishwasher, and more significantly, on avoiding distractions and unsuitable noises at the dinner table.

 

Dinner time is treasured time with our families, and this is showcased in this children’s book. I love the idea of turning phones off to avoid interruptions. 

 

This is an education book on helpfulness and etiquette, and the full-page illustrations are colorful, engaging, and memorable. Katheryn and William display sibling cooperation, being helpful, and politeness, providing great examples for young readers. A nice addition to a child’s, caregiver’s, or grandparent’s library.

A  Yes


Q  Favorite snack? 

A  Nuts

A  At my old school desk

A  No

A  Really dont have one, I write when it comes into my head


Q  Is there a specific ritualistic thing you do during your writing time? 

A  No


Q  In todays tech savvy world, most writers use a computer or laptop. Have you ever written parts of your book on paper??

A  I hand wrote all the answers to the questions, then retyped them into a word document. So yes, I am a little old school, maybe Forkman can introduce William and Kathryn to Pierre the Pencil one day, and Pierre can teach the kid how to write in cursive.

Tiffany Caldwell: I have worked with children for over thirteen years and every year basic manners become less evident. When I was growing up, my sisters and I took etiquette classes during the summer while we visited our grandparents. Etiquette was always a big part of our upbringing. When we would have our family dinners, my dad, W.R. MacKenzie, would make our utensils come to life as we were eating. Forkman became a part of our dinner routine! I am a mother of three great kids and military wife to my hero. A few years ago, I told my dad we needed to start writing our story. We are so excited to share Forkman with the world!

W.R. MacKenzie: I spent thirty-nine years in the bakery business. After I retired and my four children were grown, I felt it was time to share the importance of the family meal with the world. The Adventures of Forkman teaches children how to properly conduct themselves at the table. Our books are filled with characters all children can relate with and I believe Forkman and his crew will help children of all ages learn manners and table etiquette.
