9781554511433: Boy Soup

When Giant wakes up with a giant cold, he turns to his home medical guide for help. The prescription? A bowl of Boy Soup. Catching the boys is easy, but what he doesn’t count on is Kate. Accidentally kidnapped along with the boys, clever Kate convinces Giant that what the guide really means is a soup made by boys, not one with boys in it. Kate and the boys proceed to concoct a particularly nasty broth: They put in some mud and some thick yellow glue and a generous dollop of dandruff shampoo. Giant spits out the soup with a mighty blast, which carries the children to safety. The happily-ever-after ending sees Kate and the boys opening up their own restaurant (minus Boy Soup) and Giant learning a valuable lesson. Originally published in 1996, this delightfully silly story has been a consistent favorite. Now reissued with hilarious illustrations by renowned artist Michael Martchenko, Boy Soup is sure to attract a whole new generation of young readers.

Review:

(starred review) Loris Lesynski has a gift with rhythm and rhyme. Teachers may wish to use this book in conjunction with other giant stories. Boy Soup would also coincide well with stories like Stone Soup or one of my favourites, Wombat Stew by Mem Fox. Michael Martchenko, best known as the illustrator of Robert Munsch's stories, illustrates Boy Soup. His colourful illustrations are well suited to the humorous nature of the stories, and he captures the startled, curious, and determined expressions of the children. He also captures the giant in his stuffed up, grumpy misery. The book is targeted to ages 4-7 and would likely be enjoyed by older children as well. Highly Recommended. (Barbara Taylor Canadian Materials 2008-11-07)

First published in 1996, this delightfully silly but suspenseful tale has been re-released with new illustrations by Michael Marchenko (well known for his work with Robert Munsch titles). The story has young Kate outsmarting a giant who scoops up a bunch of boys--getting Kate in the bunch--to make Boy Soup to cure his horrible cold. His Giant's Home Medical Guide prescribes the soup, and despite feeling a tad guilty, he decides that the remedy would be justified since he is feeling so awful. Kate's quick thinking convinces him that the soup should be made by boys not with boys as ingredients, and the day is saved. The lovely ending has the giant admitting his mistake in thinking that it was OK to eat boys, and thanking Kate for tricking him. Lesynki's clever rhyming text and Martchenko's masterful illustrations combine to make this a wonderful new picture book, which will find appreciative fans among both teachers and young readers. (Canadian Teacher)
