Our Review Panel says...

We can’t get enough of Pumpkin Soup ever since we saw a group of KS1 teachers turn this book into a successful cross-curricular topic. Cat, Duck and Squirrel are friends who live in an old white cabin, making pumpkin soup together every day. One day, the strength of their relationship is put to the test when duck decides to switch roles and what follows is a compassionate adventure about friendship and belonging. We adore the warm, vibrant colours of the illustrations, the rich language and captivating storytelling in this autumn-time classic.
