Ages 4-8. First published in 1979, Croll's funny, popular too-many-cooks story in the I Can Read series is newly illustrated here, with the babas
(grandmothers) in a Russian winter setting. The simple, bright pictures in folk-art style show the bustling peasant women in the kitchen, each one tasting and adding and making a bigger mess of the soup. Hazel Rochman
