Delicious!

Written by Helen Cooper

Part of the Pumpkin Soup Series

Delicious! Synopsis

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!

Delicious! Press 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 *
