Shortlisted for The English Association Picture Book Awards 2020!Noko, the porcupine, is very hungry. On arriving at a village, he asks the other animals for some food and shelter. But, despite their full bellies, all the animals say they have nothing to spare.

Never mind: he’ll just have to make do and cook a pot of soup from the quills off his back – a soup so tasty even the king likes it. Once the villagers hear of his plan they offer just enough ingredients to make a soup worthy of them all… This African version of Stone Soup celebrates generosity and kindness – and the message that we can all benefit if we share our resources.
