Who Grew My Soup?

May/June 2010 California Country magazine

When 10-year-old Phineas Quinn shuns a healthy lunch, he sets off on an amazing adventure. Who Grew My Soup, a charming tale in light verse, includes travel by hot-air balloon to visit farmers and their fields, the source of his lunch-time soup. Illustrated by award-winning artist C.F. Payne, the book is the brainchild of advertising executive Tom Derbyshire, who, like Phineas, got a bit carried away with his soup. $9.99. Available online from
