Publisher's Description

Shoo, fly, shoo! One little fly thinks he’s getting a big bowl of hot soup all to himself. Little does he know, interlopers wait around every corner. Help him to count the unwelcome pals that join him for lunch—one after another after another—up to ten! Who will get the last slurp of soup? Does the ravenous chef have a chance against ten hungry flies? Or will the sneaky spider hiding on every page be the one to triumph?

Bright colors, sly humor, and a fun seek-and-find element are all contained within the pages of a durable, kid-friendly, paper-over-board format, making Soup for One a delectable picture book treat.





Publisher's Weekly

"Tee hee hee! Some soup for me!" cries a delighted insect as he flies through an open window into a bowl of soup on a kitchen table. Not prepared to share, the fly becomes increasingly vexed as one bug after another joins him ("No more! No more!/ It won't hold four!"), until the count reaches double digits: "Not again! Now there are 10!" Long's (Chamelia) singsong couplets with their counting-themed rhymes invite chiming in as the insect tally climbs. The mixed-media illustrations incorporate photographic elements (namely the bowl, a spoon, and some soup crackers), lending a three-dimensional quality to the swimming pool–like soup bowl. The cartoony bug characters add an abundance of visual humor: all but the first, cranky interloper are having a dandy time in the soup--diving below the surface, resting on a cracker, and drinking from a straw--and a spider is seen loitering in the background. The soup's rightful (and hungry) owner spoils the fun, but leaves a soupçon for the spider. Straightforward but entertaining fare. Ages 3–6. (Apr.)2012 Reed Business Information
