A pinch of this, a dash of that and you have soup in Pinch and Dash Make Soup. Pinch is hungry. His soup pot empty. All he has in his refrigerator is a potato, some spinach and a bit of cheese. Dash is a great cook. But his soup pot is filled with "Skinny Soup": soup with not much in it! Together these friends combine their ingredients, talents and tastes to make soup. But more than a dash of trouble ensues! A feast for your eyes (the illustrations of Thomas F. Yezerski hold a few surprises of their own) this story of friendship, working together and great soup is perfect for story time held before, after or during dinner, lunch or breakfast! Also, a gem for your reader ages 5 to 7. — Jeanette
Pinch and Dash are good friends. When Pinch gets hungry, but is too lazy to make something to eat, or to travel all the way down the street to the Chat and Chew, he goes next door to see what Dash has to offer. Dash is a great cook, but he never uses enough pepper or hot sauce in his soup. Pinch decides to take matters into his own hands and spice things up. But will the soup be delicious, or will the pair of friends have to find something else to eat for lunch?
