Every day, Cat, Squirrel and Duck make pumpkin soup — the best you’ve ever tasted. But one day, disaster strikes — there isn’t a single ripe pumpkin to be found! So they make fish soup, mushroom soup and beetroot soup. But will the new soups be as delicious as their favourite? Duck doesn’t think so — in fact he won’t even try them!
Poor Duck gets hungrier and hungrier and grumpier and grumpier, until at last Cat comes up with a soup that might just be...delicious!

Helen Cooper is the only illustrator to win the prestigious Kate Greenaway Award for two consecutive books: The Baby Who Wouldn’t Go to Bed and Pumpkin Soup.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 2—Cat, Duck, and Squirrel are back in this companion to Pumpkin Soup (1999) and A Pipkin of Pepper (2005, both Farrar). Disaster has struck the pumpkin patch—no ripe pumpkins for the animals' favorite dish. The friends decide to make something new to eat, but Duck is unwilling to try either fish soup, mushroom soup, or beet soup (especially offensive because it is pink). Cat tries to trick Duck by mixing a combination of veggies and ingredients that result in a broth that is the exact color of pumpkin soup. After a tentative sip, Duck declares it "Delicious!" and order is restored in the old white cabin. The story has universal appeal—everyone either knows, or is, a fussy eater. Readers will empathize with Duck, who is obstinate without being intolerable, and cheer for Cat and Squirrel as their patience and accommodation lead to eventual success. The illustrations are warm and rustic, and the layout does an excellent job of mixing full-page portraits and white space. A recipe for "Pink Soup" is included. This beautiful book is a must-have.—Kara Schaff Dean, Needham Public Library, MA
