When Grandma died, Grandpa was too sad to do anything. All day long, day after day, he sat by himself in his house. Then one day Grandpa wakes up and realizes he misses the soup his wife used to make for him. So he decides to try to make the soup himself. Though each batch he makes is bigger and better than the last, Grandpa hardly gets a taste of it. Unexpected visitors, hungry for soup, keep arriving at his door. Soon Grandpa discovers that sharing with his new friends is the best cure for his loneliness. Ichikawa's warm illustrations show Grandpa's mood gradually changing from dark to sunny, and children will delight in Grandpa's charming parade of visitors Recommended for ages 4 to 8.
