Item description for Hammer Soup by Ingrid Schubert & Dieter Schubert...

Kate lives in a nice, tidy little house and keeps busy doing chores, but she's not exactly friendly. When Bruce decides to build a home next door, all that banging infuriates her. He offers her dandelion tea, but she says no. How about fishing? No! Soon winter is upon them. While Kate is warm and well fed in her home, Bruce is shivering and hungry in his shack. How the two eventually bond over Bruce's unusual "hammer soup" makes for an enchanting, vividly drawn tale of unexpected friendship and the joy of sharing.

Reviews - What do customers think about Hammer Soup?

Beautifully illustrated story similar to stone soup  Dec 19, 2007
This is one of my favorite books. The pictures are beautiful and the story teaches understanding.
Lovely New Children's Book With A Great Message  Oct 29, 2004
Kate is very picky about her home. She always makes sure that it is nice and tidy. However, she's not the friendliest person in the world. Especially once a man named Bruce decides to build a house for himself right next door to Kate's. His incessant banging and hammering infuriates Kate, and makes her despise Bruce on sight. Even his many offers for dandelion tea, or a day of fishing infuriate her. But when winter springs up, Bruce is shivering in his shack, while Kate is cozy in her cottage. Soon Bruce's shack blows away, and Kate, being a kind neighbor invites him to share her cottage, where they bond over a strange delicacy that Bruce has learned to make, known as hammer soup.

Ingrid & Dieter Schubert have done an amazing job with HAMMER SOUP. Their lovely prose will teach young readers that you should try to get along with someone before you judge them, and the wonderfully, colorful illustrations bring that message to life, especially when depicting Bruce's dog and Kate's cat becoming friends. All in all this is a wonderful new children's book that conveys a lovely message.
