Synopsis

Ashely Fugg is no ordinary boy. After a horrific accident at the Gloop Soup factory, he is transformed into a can of soup. You see, the vat of tomato soup Ashley's mother accidentally dropped him into was made with tomatoes that had been covered by radioactive cosmic dust after being struck by a meteor. And Ashley isn't just any old walking, talking soup can - oh no! With a twirl and a spin he can transform into SOUPY BOY! SOUPY HERO! His very name strikes fear into the hearts of villains the world over! And soon he's on the trail of the sick and twisted Mortimer Napkin!!! Soupy Boy is sure to become a favorite character of early readers. The integration of text and illustration, the zany plot with puzzles, and the other interactive devices will make fans of even the most reluctant readers.

The convoluted story is but a vehicle for Burnard's (Pork and Beef's Great Adventure) slapstick humor, which infuses his cartoon panels and third-person narration.
