Katy | 1 comments I read this book a lot as a kid in the late 90s and early 2000s, but I would guess it was written in the 60s or 70s, maybe earlier. I have searched high and low and cannot find the title or author to this book. The main plot was as described in the title - focused on a tea kettle and pot trying to make a stew, as far as I remember there were no human characters in the book. I believe the cover of the book was just white and light brown as well. The font and illustrations were the same color and style of "Make Way for the Ducklings" by Robert McCloskey but I looked at his list of books and it is not by him. Please help if you remember anything!!
