Veggie Soup
Written by Dorothy Donohue
Illustrated by Dorothy Donohue

School Library Journal, 10/1/2000
"In a spirited match of illustration and text, Donohue offers a fresh story about friendship, advice, and sharing. The artist's crisp, animated paper-collage creations feature familiar animals in an unfamiliar setting: a kitchen where a rabbit cooks up recipes from her favorite Great Nana's cookbook. Things begin to go awry when friends invited to her veggie-soup party stop by to improve the recipe with favorite ingredients: worms, hay, fish, bugs. The result is a classic case of ‘Too many cooks spoil the broth.' The art dominates each double-page spread, with the oversized blue text printed in side panels. As the situation becomes more chaotic, the angles of the illustrations become wackier until the situation is resolved. . . . Families and classrooms could extend the experience by making their own soup following Great Nana's recipe included at the end."

The Midwest Book Review, 12/1/2000
“Dorothy Donohue's Veggie Soup tells of Miss Bunn, who loves to cook vegetable soup. Her friends love to participate, but too many cooks can spoil the broth as this fun tale demonstrates.”
