Robert Newton Peck (born February 17, 1928) is an American author who writes young adult novels. Peck claims his birth date to have been February 17, 1928, but refuses to specify his birthplace. It is believed to be Ticonderoga, New York, where he spent his early years with his mother, Lucille Dornburgh Peck, and aunt Caroline Dornburgh.

Dear Mrs. Peck, Your son Robert made a rude remark to Miss Boland, our school nurse. This was step one. Soup and I had, of course, both read the note over and over all the way home and could have recited it upside-down in a barrel of water

Dear Mrs. Perhaps it was not intended to be as coarse as it sounded. Miss Boland thinks that you (his mother) should be informed of this. Soup and I had, of course, both read the note over and over all the way home and could have recited it upside-down in a barrel of water. But by asking Mama what it said, she would have to believe in my innocence. And as I asked the question, I made sure my eyes were open as wide and pure as I could force them.

With over 65 books published, including the breathtaking (and somewhat autobiographical) A Day No Pigs Would Die, Robert Newton Peck has enjoyed an illustrious writing career.

Soup was my best pal. His real and righteous name was Luther Wesley Vinson, but nobody called him Luther. He didn't like it. I called him Luther just once, which promoted Soup to break me of a very bad habit before it really got formed. With over 65 books published, including the breathtaking (and somewhat autobiographical) A Day No Pigs Would Die, Robert Newton Peck has enjoyed an illustrious writing career. Now, in an autobiography as unique as he is, Peck tells his story through the people in his life.

Robert Newton Peck comes from generations of Yankee farmers. Like the Vermont folk he writes about in his novel, A Part of the Sky, he was raised as a boy in the Shaker Way, which endured even after the sect itself had died out. Its view of life is embodied in the character of his young protagonist's father, who believed that a faith is more blessed when put to use than when put to word: "A man's worship counts for naught, unless his dog and cat are the better for i. Peck has written over fifty novels, six nonfiction works, numerous songs, and over one hundred poems.

I found this book somewhat by chance in my local library. It looked interesting...sort of like a modern version of Tom Sawyer, and that's exactly what it was. Boys in particular will love these books, because they chronicle the life of boys as it really exists - dirt, worms, clubhouses, alternately loving/hating girls, playing pranks, and just generally getting into and out of various and sundry mischief.

"Soup" is essentially an autobiographical account of author Robert Newton Peck's experiences growing up in rural Vermont in the 1920s. While he has no doubt greatly embellished these accounts to make them larger than life in these books, they are enormously fun and charming nonetheless. The young Peck (Rob in the stories) recounts life with his best pal "Soup", so named because he is embarrassed by his real name (Luther) and only comes running when his mother makes the dinner call of "Soup's On!" Hence, his nickname Soup became a permanent ID and also the namesake for this wonderful series of books. Soup is the mischievious ringleader in most of the misadventures, with Rob the younger and more naive sidekick.

My son loved these stories as I read them aloud to him. For road trips, we would find some books from the "Soup" series on tape and listen to those, and they invariably made the miles go faster.

As a parent, I loved the stories not only because they are hysterically funny, but because they are nostalgic and take me back to my own childhood when the pace of life was slower, things were simpler, and children were somehow less worldly wise, without the craving for 24/7 electronic stimulation. Sigh.

Peck imparts a wholesomeness to us in these books and my child never complained that the stories were sappy or lame. We both loved the recurring characters from book to book, such as the boys' teacher, and the portly Miss Bolund, the school nurse who shows up in her tiny, highly unreliable car at regular intervals. There's also the school bully - who happens to be a girl - and can whump just about any boy in the county.

Very occassionally (as in once or twice) there is content that some parents may find slightly objectionable - such as the boys experimenting with smoking or swearing. However, as a christian parent I never found any of these things problematic because the context was always quite clear that what the boys were doing was wrong and the book never comes across as condoning such behavior. It's more like the stories we've heard of kids who try smoking, only to end up turning green and vowing never to touch the foul things again. So, think in terms of Mark Twain...not something that tries to be "hip" by being PG-13, or going to the other extreme and bending over backwards to be politically correct and preachy.

In summary, I whole-heartedly recommend these books. There are a dozen or more in the series. They build on a fine tradition first given to us by Mark Twain in "Tom Sawyer" and "Huckleberry Finn," portraying boyhood the way it was and forever should be.

I remember being in elementary school and loving when it was story time because the teacher would always bring out one if these books. Now, I am a mother of my own children and knew they would enjoy them just as much as I did, and they do. They are 10 & 9 but I am still asked almost every night to read them a story out of one of these books. :0)

"Soup" is one of my all-time favorites! I've read my copy so many times that it's falling apart. This Christmas I bought copies of "Soup" for all of my nephews. I felt this story should be passed on to the next generation of readers.

I enjoyed reading the soup books with my children and am now enjoying reading them with my grandson .
Few authors have been able to capture the innocence of childhood with such clarity as Mr.Peck.

I feel as though Im walking along on that dirt road ....heading towards another adventure with Soup and Rob!

Love how he writes about the tough but good Ole days in Vermont reminds me of my childhood, sure do wish we could go back in time.

This is a great book for kids. I grew up reading the Soup books and reread this one, the first, recently at age 34. It's a series of quick adventures, one per chapter, with a slight feel of overarching story at the end. It's also a quick read from an adult's standpoint. But let's be clear, this is a book for kids. Getting in trouble, getting out of trouble, and in the end doing the right (or close enough) thing.

My 9 year old loves reading these stories. They're the perfect length for a quick assignment.
I loved this book so such! It taught you so much and made you feel good inside. I definitely recommend this book to anyone. No matter what type of books you are into, you are going to love this book. It brightens up your day to make it so much better. On a scale of 1 to 10, 1 being the worst and 10 being AMAZING, it's a 10!????????????????
