Praise for "Dragon Soup"
"Dragon Soup is a captivating combination of prose, verse and
art. Enter this world of dragons and you will be entertained
with a delightful, frightening, humorous and thought-provoking
-Jill Bauman, artist and illustrator,
"Marge Simon's artwork for DRAGON SOUP will delight the
child in all of us."
--Alan M. Clark, World Fantasy
Award-winning co-creator of The Halloween Mouse.
"...glib...uproarious...poignant. Turzillo and Simon thrive
on the 'approach not taken' as they present dragons with
tongues in cheeks and wenches in tow. These are fairy-tale
dragons dragged hissing and flaming into the 21st Century,
complete with bold and saucy illustrations. The menu, of
course, remains unchanged--villagers and family pets, with a
side order of virgins. Come get some."
