A spat over soup challenges two aptly named friends — Pinch and Dash — in this early-reader book by Westminster author Michael Daley. Pinch is hungry and a little lazy, and he likes hot sauce and pepper in his soup. Dash is a terrific cook and a fan of "skinny soup." They both spice the pot, ruining the lunch but strengthening their friendship. In Pinch and Dash Make Soup, Daley offers up humor and tips his hat to the stone-soup folk tale. It's filled with ear-pleasing wordplay as the indeterminate animals simmer, mince, slurp and pinch and then eventually dash to the Chat and Chew for lunch. The just-released chapter book has the potential to become a hot item for young readers.

"Pinch and Dash Make Soup": Written by Michael J. Daley, illustrated by Thomas E. Yezerski, Charlesbridge, 2012, 48 pages, $12.95 hardcover, $5.95 soft cover, Info, michaeljdaley.com.
