Quill Soup, Hardback Book

Quill Soup Hardback

Illustrated by Dale Blankenaar

Part of the One Story, Many Voices series



Quill Soup is a prestigious White Ravon 2020. Shortlisted for The English Association Picture Book Awards 2020!Noko, the porcupine, is very hungry.

On arriving at a village, he asks the other animals for some food and shelter.

But, despite their full bellies, all the animals say they have nothing to spare.

Never mind: he'll just have to make do and cook a pot of soup from the quills off his back - a soup so tasty even the king likes it.

Once the villagers hear of his plan they offer just enough ingredients to make a soup worthy of them all... This African version of Stone Soup celebrates generosity and kindness - and the message that we can all benefit if we share our resources.
