An Island in the SoupBook - 2001
Fish soup is not exactly appetizing to young Victor, so he sets out to spice things up by diving into his bowl. Pelted by peas and carrots, he struggles toward an island of overgrown celery stalks, where he battles a ferocious pepper dragon. Overcoming the onslaught of each dreaded ingredient, Victor finds that he's hungrier than he thought, and discovers to his surprise that Mom's fish soup is the best he's ever tasted. "Young children who go with the game will enjoy the playful combination of the wild and the mundane ..." -- Booklist
