Pumpkin Soup Synopsis

Cat, Duck and Squirrel live in an old white cabin, with a pumpkin patch in the garden. Every day Cat slices up some pumpkin, Squirrel stirs in some water and Duck tips in some salt to make perfect pumpkin soup... until the day Duck wants to do the stirring... A funny, rhythmical story about friendship and sharing, with fabulous animal characters, illustrated in glowing autumnal colours, which received rave reviews in hardback.

Pumpkin Soup Press Reviews

Pumpkin Soup, with its rhythmic text, syncopated layout, and rich and hot colour harmonies, is both a musical comedy and a visual feast. The trio are outrageously attractive characters and such is Cooper's command of technical effects, you can almost taste the colours, touch the textures and lose yourself in the autumnal landscape -- Jan Doonan * TES * Enticing * Sunday Telegraph * A portable work of art, glowing the rich colours of autumn . . . A highly inventive, witty slant on a familiar theme of friendship and sharing which children of ages three and up will adore * Bookseller * Here is a story of friendship lost and regained, told with insight and understanding, not only as far as the characters are concerned, but as to how a picture book works . . . The book is brilliantly constructed * Child Education * The stunning lustrous illustrations which accompany this story reflect its warmth, vivacity and humour * Books Etc. *
