Review by Publishers Weekly Reviews

Horace's mother cooks up an antidote to a bad day in a story that ``bubbles with a building excitement''; paintings ``convey all of the feisty emotion of a frustrated youngster,'' said PW. Ages 3-8.(Mar.) Copyright 1995 Cahners Business Information.

Review by Publisher Summary 2

It has been a bad day for Horace. A very bad day. He’s come home feeling mean. But his mother knows just what to do! “For the book Mean Soup, the recipe is as follows: (1) clever text spiced with one or two outrageous bits; (2) a grand message about getting out anger instead of locking it inside; and (3) exciting artwork as full of life as the story.”--Booklist
