Joining the Feelings & First series: after initially refusing a vegetable soup he helped cook, a young child tastes it and likes it.

Joining the Feelings & First series: a young child helps his Mum and Mama cook a green vegetable soup, but then emphatically refuses to eat it. After carefully watching his parents enjoying the meal, the child finally agrees to taste it and discovers that he likes it after all! Full of humor and sound effects, this adorable and relatable tale offers a positive model for handling food reluctance.

AUTHOR: Sumana Seeboruth writes books inspired by the natural world and her two young children. A night owl, she is most likely to be found writing when her husband and children are fast asleep. She loves music and a noisy, happy house! Sumana is based in London, UK.

Maribel Castells is an illustrator from Mallorca, Spain. In 2020 she took part in PBChat Mentorship Program and was Daniel Wiseman's mentee. Her work was shortlisted for the Illustrators' Exhibition at the 2021 Bologna Children's Book Fair.
