Potato Soup is one of a series of children's picture books by Ojibwe artist and writer Ferguson Plain. In this book, the author weaves humour and a legend into the story that features an older man and a youth. The pair enjoys the Elder's potato soup (pinaaboo) as the storyteller tells the one about trickster Nanaboozho and the rabbit. Finding food is important to Nanaboozho as he walks around the earth. He hears disturbing sounds and realizes that his stomach is growling for food. With only his drum and drum stick he plays songs for the creatures of the forest. They eventually gather round Nanaboozho to listen. Finally Nanaboozho entices rabbit to listen to the song and then the reason why rabbit has such an odd appearance is revealed. Ferguson Plain expertly weaves cultural content and Ojibwa words into the story set in a contemporary First Nation. A glossary of Ojibwe terms is provided. His simple and effective line drawings of the boy and the Elder convey the warmth of their unique relationship. This story, like others in the series, captures the traditional spirit of storytelling by teaching and entertaining.
