What's it all about: What does a giant do when he wakes up with a giant cold and a sore throat? What does he do? Well he consults his "Giant's Home Medical Guide" of course. Eyeballs scrolling down they land on the perfect remedy, Boy Soup! He will need to assemble some boys for the recipe but the fun part is he mistakenly corals a GIRL, named Kate. Kate is so smart, she figures out a way to save the day and rescue the boys from a sure tragedy. She convinces the Giant that the recipe calls for soup made by boys and not with the boys as the main ingredient. The book takes young readers on a rhyming journey that brings friendship, courage, and fast-thinking to life as Kate saves her friends from a soupy fate.
