Elephant Soup - Ingrid and Dieter Schubert (Picture Book)

Released April 2010

Reviewed by Bob Walch

Feeling blue, Mouse knows that only one thing will cheer him up – some elephant soup. Rounding up all his friends, Mouse gets all the ingredients for the soup and a huge pot to heat them in.

Now it is time to catch an elephant and pop it in the pot. Successful in his quest for the soup’s main ingredient, Mouse and his friends get the huge elephant in the pot. But when it comes time to lower the lid onto the pot they run into a problem – a big problem!

The unexpected ending of this picture book is sure to elicit some laughter from youngsters two or three years of age and older. You didn’t really expect them to cook the elephant did you? But you’ll be surprised at how this quirky tale ends.
