Deborah Rigby's illustrations in this book are loud and funny and really easy on the eyes. The illustrations, along with the story, had both of us laughing out loud more than once. You know where the story is going the whole time, right from the beginning, but with this story it makes no difference at all.
Mr. Winkle basically leaves a very great smelling pot of stew on the top of his car and on the way to his friends how a host of people and animals smell the stew and all, for various reasons,
Classic story of following - Mr Winkle makes stew and drives it to a friend, but leaves it on the top of his car. Some dogs smell stew and follow Mr Winkle, then the dog catcher follows the dogs ...

Cute, pictures aren't the most appealing but simple and informative.

Could just about read at a storytimes.

repeating story about a man that puts soup on the top of his car and has many different people following him to get it or the other people chasing it.
Mr. Winkle journeys to share his stew with a friend, in the process attracting quite a crowd. Simple text, simple illustrations. Repetitive.
