Overview

Soup is delicious in every season, and this delightful cookbook includes over thirty recipes for fall, winter, spring, and summer soups, as well as related recipes for bread, salads, and snacks. Using tasty ingredients and winning combinations, Chef Gary Goss proves that even beginning chefs can create scrumptious soups! Recipes are charmingly named: "You Can’t Elope" (a cold cantaloupe soup) or "Sob Soup" (made with onions). Most notably, however, are Dyer's ethereal illustrations that gracefully accompany the recipes, offering images of dancing celery and sunbathing tomatoes that are sure to keep kids engaged while in the kitchen.

Blue Moon Soup, originally published fourteen years ago, is a quintessential cookbook—and a beautiful gift book for holidays and birthdays alike! Blue Moon Soup is the winner of such awards as the Smithsonian Notable Books for Children, Nappa Award, Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Gold Award, Real Life Award, and Bookbuilders of Boston, as well as the Parents' Choice Award. Explore the joys of cooking with children while enjoying some delicious seasonal soups!

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kristin Harris
This is an odd assortment of great kids' art, seasonal soup recipes that look very enticing, and cooking instruction intended for adults. The components that work well are the beautiful watercolor illustrations of such things as a lion and lamb sharing a bed with a terrific quilt, for the Peace Soup; or Mary sitting at a table in her garden as rabbits bring her a bowl of gazpacho. However, Little Bo Peep and her lambie with a lamb recipe seems insensitive to how a child might feel. The illustrations are classic in style and really carry the book. Because the illustrations speak to very young children, it is disappointing to have the recipes themselves involve complicated cooking procedures that would be frustrating to a young child. Waiting for soaking beans and using dangerous kitchen equipment and recipes with wine also seemed inappropriate.
School Library Journal
Gr 4-6-This entertaining collection of delicious recipes for families to make and eat together opens with the words of Lewis Carroll's "Beautiful Soup" incorporated into a watercolor painting of two elegant turtles lifting the lid off of a lovely tureen. Goss offers 33 soupy concoctions, usually one per page, and arranged by season. The tone is lighthearted and full of quirky humor: "(No) Duck Soup: Groucho Marx's favorite lentil soup." The recipes are clear; the soups are thick and thin; hot and cold; meat, fish, and vegetarian; and meant to be appetizers, main courses, and even desserts. The last section contains eight recipes for bread and snacks to serve with all of that soup. Dyer's outstanding watercolors echo the tone of the text; there are 14 fanciful full-page illustrations, and whimsical spot art is scattered throughout. Soup recipes can be found in many general cookbooks for children; however, if you want a special treat for the eye and the palate, add this one.-Carolyn Jenks, First Parish Unitarian Church, Portland, ME Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.

Whimsical illustrations of talking heads of lettuce and soups with names such as Polka Dot and Lickity Split Pea make deciding what to cook tonight for dinner an enchanting adventure.
