Peanut Butter Soup is a heartwarming collection of 100 poems or so, written for children (and adults alike), packed with fun and often thought provoking messages. Daring and bold, witty and clever, these poems challenge young readers to hope against all odds; to have compassion on the elderly and "challenged", to see an overweight person as "stronger" and not "bigger", to choose their words carefully and truly forgive others; all wrapped up into one little book.
"I chose a simple black and white format, accompanied by chicken-scratch illustrations, to encourage children to pick up that pen and draw! (If I can do it, they can do it.) Nothing is overdone or overcomplicated about Peanut Butter Soup. I have one desire here and that's to open up the child's mind to writing and art, and encourage them to be their own success story by not only overcoming obstacles, but kicking them right out of the way and doing it while smiling."
