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 experience."
-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."
-Tyree Campbell, Managing Editor, Samís Dot Publishing
