A heart-warming tale about trying something new, starring Cat, Squirrel and Duck from the much-loved PUMPKIN SOUP and A PIPKIN OF PEPPER.
HELEN COOPER is the only illustrator ever to win the highly prestigious Kate Greenaway Award for two consecutive books- THE BABY WHO WOULDN'T GO TO BED, 1996 and PUMPKIN SOUP, 1998. She has had several other successful titles published by Doubleday including LITTLE MONSTER DID IT! and THE BEAR UNDER THE STAIRS, which won the Smarties Young Judges' Award in 1994. Both are now perennial favourites in nurseries, schools, libraries and bookshops. Helen is married to author-illustrator Ted Dewan. They have one daughter and live in Oxford.
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 *
