Rezension: The seeds of disaster are sown in the first cross section of the Hotel Splendide in Alastair Graham's stunning, oversized, wordless picture book Full Moon Soup, though you wouldn't know it at first glance. From attic to basement, all seems tranquil. Under a full moon, a young couple stands arm in arm on a balcony, gazing skyward at the bright orb. A maid upstairs is dusting a lamp, as an overtaxed bellhop lugs luggage. An elderly gentleman hurries into the dining room with a newspaper. Downstairs in the basement, the cook is just about to take the fateful sip of glowing green, presumably full-moon soup. Turn the next page, and ... oh, my. All is no longer splendid at the Hotel Splendide, it seems. The moonstruck couple is visibly shaken as a pot wrenches itself from the balcony and spirals downward. Ghoulish goblins have appeared in the attic! The bedspread has attacked the maid! Is that Quasimodo under the stairwell? We hesitate to turn the page. The hotel paintings are alive! The maid is flailing under the bed! The cook is turning into a werewolf! Hotel life--and the hotel with it--continues to derail as a space ship crashes into the roof, Dracula comes out to dance, sausage links grow legs and crawl out of the freezer, mummies emerge, and the nearby canal floods the hotel basement. Young readers will eagerly devour the deliciously deranged details, tracking the characters from spread to spread to see what ridiculous events are unfolding. Your kids will find something new, odd, or hilarious in Full Moon Soup every time they look at it, which will no doubt be often! (Ages 5 to 105) --Karin Snelson
