School Library Journal - 05/01/2014 PreS-Gr 2—Through photographic images of manipulated 3-D objects, Border, who is the mastermind of the Bent Objects Project, crafts hilarity in this new picture book. The hero is a peanut butter—lathered piece of white bread with bent paperclips for arms and legs. Bored with playing solo soccer, Peanut Butter wanders his new neighborhood, requesting companionship in a repeated rhyme with an ending that alters to accommodate each neighbor: "we'll go together like Peanut Butter and…Hamburger" (who happens to be walking two hot dogs). The suspense builds, as readers realize how things should come together. In the end, Peanut Butter and Jelly bring the entire food team together to play. Border's goalposts made of forks and a meatball skipping a spaghetti rope are only a few of the creatively zany photographs that will make this a read-aloud hit.—Gay Lynn Van Vleck, Henrico County Library, Glen Allen, VA - Copyright 2014 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
