: Book Reviews > Veggie Soup
By Dorothy Donahue
Have you ever tried an original recipe and after you give it a taste
test, realized that its missing that special flavor and added something
to improve it? Sometimes the added ingredients give it just what it needs
and other times you realize that it was better off without it.
Miss Bun has invited some friends over for dinner. She decides to make a
large pot of vegetable soup. Rather than relying on Great Nana's Veggie Soup, she ventures out on her own creative ability in developing her own
recipe. One by one she is visited by her intended guests while she is busy preparing the soup. Crow brings worms and suggests that they will
add just the right flavor to the soup. Cat comes and contributes tangy tunas. Toad donates beastie bugs for the dinner. Cow brings her favorite
cow treat - homegrown hay.
Miss Bun takes a taste of her completed soup and realizes that its
missing something. When she can't find anything to add, she adds all of
the things brought by her friends. The combination is not at all what she
expected or enjoys. In the end, all of the guests work together to make a
new pot following Great Nana's Veggie Soup Recipe.
Veggie Soup is beautifully illustrated by the author using small pieces
of cut paper carefully arranged for the pictures. One bite of this Veggie Soup and you'll want to come back for more!
