"Pumpkin Soup, with its rhythmic text, syncopated layout, and rich and hot colour harmonies, is both a musical comedy and a visual feast. The trio are outrageously attractive characters and such is Cooper's command of technical effects, you can almost taste the colours, touch the textures and lose yourself in the autumnal landscape" (Jan Doonan TES)
"Enticing" (Sunday Telegraph)
"A portable work of art, glowing the rich colours of autumn . . . A highly inventive, witty slant on a familiar theme of friendship and sharing which children of ages three and up will adore" (Bookseller)
"Here is a story of friendship lost and regained, told with insight and understanding, not only as far as the characters are concerned, but as to how a picture book works . . . The book is brilliantly constructed" (Child Education)
"The stunning lustrous illustrations which accompany this story reflect its warmth, vivacity and humour" (Books Etc.)
A lively story about friendship and sharing from winner of the Kate Greenaway Award, Helen Cooper.See all Product description

All three animals live in a little cabin out in the middle of the forest. They play musical instruments and live off their home-made `Pumpkin Soup'!
I purchased this delightful book for its beautiful pictures - all done in `autumnal' colours! This copy comes with a CD of the story which is read by Simon Russell Beale. I'm not one much for Audio Books, but this is well read and quite delightful - including sound effects. There's also a second version on the CD that children can read along with as they are given a sound signal when to turn the page.
Very good value.
