A Pipkin Of Pepper

Written by Helen Cooper

Part of the Pumpkin Soup Series

A Pipkin Of Pepper Synopsis

Something was bubbling in the old white cabin. What was in the cooking pot? Pumpkin Soup. Made by a Cat, a Squirrel and a Duck, waiting just for a pipkin of salt, to make it the best you ever tasted . . . But the salt jar smashes and there is none left for the Pumpkin Soup! Cat, Squirrel and Duck must go to the city to buy some more. Duck has the habit of wandering off but he promises not to get lost. But not everything goes to plan . . . Fans of Pumpkin Soup will be delighted by this sequel with its warm and vibrant illustrations.

A Pipkin Of Pepper Press Reviews

A spectacular sequel to Pumpkin Soup . . . Share Cooper's recipe for success, close the covers and then hear the cries for more * TES * Fraught territory, beautifully controlled * Guardian * As well as being beautifully illustrated and full of the same spiky humour as Cooper's best-selling Pumpkin Soup, it conveys how scary being lost can be - for children and parents * Daily Telegraph * Well designed and beautifully produced, it positively glows with mellow autumn warmth and fruitfulness * Books for Keeps * The rich, glowing colours give a New York-like city an oriental, almost psychedelic look . . . The book has an adorable quality. One of my favourites * The Children's Bookseller *
