Soup for One
written and illustrated by Ethan Long, 2012, Running Press
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.
