What's for lunch? Pinch and Dash are good friends. When Pinch gets hungry, but is too lazy to make something to eat, or to travel all the way down the street to the Chat and Chew, he goes next door to see what Dash has to offer. Dash is a great cook, but he never uses enough pepper or hot sauce in his soup. Pinch decides to take matters into his own hands and spice things up. But will the soup be delicious, or will the pair of friends have to find something else to eat for lunch? Michael J. Daley's first book in this early reader series is a funny and simple story about friendship. Readers will enjoy the humor throughout Thomas Yezerski's lighthearted illustrations. Pinch and Dash are a good model for friends who sometimes do things differently - but always stick together in the end.
