Too many cooks can spoil the soup, they say, but what about Babas, each with her own opinion of what will make the soup the best? Cute, funny story.

Appealing to junior readers, luckily this is not a Baba Yaga story. The Babas are actually four (4) grandmothers who, as the story builds, discover within themselves a spirit of co-operation and understanding. Baba Edis wakes to a cold morning, needing a good soup to warm her. The softly-neutral color illustrations flow with simple outlines-no harsh comic book style here. Outfitted in folksy costumes, the other Babas arrive, one by one, to take charge in the kitchen. Humorous conflict arises before the Babas accept the notion that good soup is created through teamwork, and a little less pepper!

I liked Baba Molka best with her kerchief babushka, grocery basket and ribbon trimmed smock.
