Description - 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!

Book Reviews - Delicious! by Helen Cooper

US Kirkus Review » Cat, Duck and Squirrel from Pumpkin Soup (1999) and A Pipkin of Pepper (2005), return in another culinary adventure. Without a ripe pumpkin in their garden to make soup, they try recipes for Fish Soup, Mushroom Soup and Beet Soup, but when Duck sniffs each one, he howls, "YUCK! All I want is Pumpkin Soup . . . and that's not orange!" While the other two are taking a bath, Cat has a plan; he peels, chops and slices zucchini, tomatoes, carrots and corn and plops them into the cooking pot. When Duck peers into the pot, he says, "That looks like Pumpkin Soup." He sips and quacks, "This isn't Pumpkin Soup . . . but it's the best soup I ever tasted. Let's eat the whole pot!" Entertaining detailed illustrations, interesting page composition with sidebars of charming insects commenting on the action and rhyming phrases maintain the playfulness of characters and the childlike behavior. Preschoolers will enjoy the story while subtly ingesting the message of trying new foods. Recipe for Pink Soup included. (Picture book. 4-8) (Kirkus Reviews)
