Synopsis

Delicious! by Helen Cooper

Every day, Cat, Squirrel and Duck make pumpkin soup - the best you've ever tasted. But one day, disaster strikes - there's not a single ripe pumpkin to be found! So, they make fish soup, mushroom soup and beetroot soup, but will the new soups be as delicious as their favourite? Duck doesn't think so - in fact he won't even try them! Poor Duck gets hungrier and hungrier and grumpier and grumpier, until at last Cat comes up with a soup that might just be ...delicious!

Reviews

As always, Cooper presents a blend of glorious colour and an imaginative text with lots of long, interesting words and repetition ... Highly recommended The School Librarian Lose yourself in the illustration, laugh out loud at the antics of the friends, learn some important lessons and create a beautifully pink soup, but most of all enjoy this wonderful story book writeaway.org.uk Superbly detailed, richly coloured illustrations and a dash of humour - are as delicious as ever (there's even a recipe for the delicious beetroot soup Duck missed out on). It's well worth sampling the delights of this picture book and if you've not yet tasted the others - Pumpkin Soup and A Pipkin of Pepper - try them too -- Jill Bennett www.wordpool.co.uk Exquisitely detailed and rich illustrations make this a joy to read Child Education A heart-warming children's fable for fussy eaters and their exasperated parents ... Delicious is an enchanting book full of detailed, colourful illustration and humour -- Beth Wicks Organic Life

It’s a community united by a passion for books and promoting the best there is in children’s literature.

Sam Bateman and family

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

Shannon-Louise Masters – age 15

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

Katie Lonsdale

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

Nickey and Tomasz Hawryszczuk

A great way to introduce kids to great books, authors & genres. Parents can find age-appropriate books to share with their children.

Judi Davies – Aberdare Girls Sch

It’s really exciting to read and review new books, thrilling to see my reviews online and I love finding the final published copies on sale.
