Holland’s mixed-media charcoals and collage offer enough to interest the eye, and embellished with improvised animal sounds and song, it could be an entertaining read-aloud.
—New York Times
Cheerful, bright, blocky mixed-media illustrations go well with the jocular intent of the story.
—School Library Journal
The full-page mixed-media illustrations are eye-catching, and coordinate well with the vibrantly large text. Little ones will enjoy these illustrations because of their simplicity. Combine this with the repetition of text, and a “soup song,” and this book is sure to become a steadfast favorite.
