Alphabet Soup is an alphabet book for young readers and the young at heart.

From School Library Journal: (PreSchool — Grade 2) «Otter finds a big old soup pot in his new home and invites 26 friends to a potluck house-warming party, asking each to bring a food that’s soup-worthy. From Armadillo with his asparagus, to Zebra with his zucchini, they all contribute to a hearty meal and a lush, lively alphabet book. Gustafson’s beautiful paintings are dark and soft, and his striking use of light adds drama and depth.»

Alphabet Soup was reprinted in 1994 by The Greenwich Workshop Press, and has enjoyed several reprintings since that time.
