A picky eater and a gourmet granny are on a collision course in this hearty, funny picture book treat.

Ask Alvie what his favorite food is.
"I only eat soup," says Alvie.
For breakfast? Lunch? Dinner? A snack?
"I only eat soup," says Alvie.
Alvie's parents put up with his eccentricity for a while -- after all, soup is both delicious and nutritious. But when Alvie's grandmother, a renowned chef, comes to visit, will they be able to keep their son's soupy sympathies a secret?
A sharp-eyed, affectionate, and very funny book about a boy and his soup.
