Chicken Soup Boots by Maira Kalman

This book was given to me by my American Godmother Valerie Phillips.

It is really interesting because there is a story on each page and the stories are separate but they are linked (mummy gave me that word).  It's a book about different jobs people have. Like: a fireman, a cafe person, a doctor, a pianist and a person who sells all sorts of things, an artist, policeman and scientist. It's quite funny and I really like the pictures because whenever it's saying something, to describe the thing, there are little pictures of what it is on the side of the page. In some pictures there is a lot of detail. My favourite page is about a man who owns a cafe who's got eight arms and he's called Barney March. The title of the book comes from this story because chicken soup boots means would you like chicken soup to take away.

This is my favourite picture of the chef with eight arms


  1. I like the sound of this book very much. I may have to buy it for myself. I like pictures with a lot of details.

  2. Let me know what you think of it Mathew!
