Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

By the Kate Greenaway Medalist<br> <br> Deep in the woods in an old white cabin, three friends make their pumpkin soup the same way every day. The Cat slices up the pumpkin, the Squirrel stirs in the water, and the Duck tips in just enough salt. But one day the Duck wants to stir instead, and then there is a horrible squabble, and he leaves the cabin in a huff. It isn't long before the Cat and the Squirrel start to worry about him and begin a search for their friend. Rendered in pictures richly evoking autumn, Helen Cooper's delightful story will resonate for an child who has known the difficulties that come with friendship. Included at the end is a recipe for delicious pumpkin soup.<br>

Horn Book Review

When Duck announces he wants to stir their pumpkin soup, his friends, Squirrel and Cat, laugh at him, since that is Squirrel's job. Duck walks out and doesn't come back, not even at supper time. Worried, Squirrel and Cat set out to find him. Cooper's use of language and the bright, pumpkin-hued illustrations present a fresh look at what it means to be a friend. A recipe for pumpkin soup is appended. From HORN BOOK Spring 2000, (c) Copyright 2010. The Horn Book, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
