This is the Soup-Dragon. She lives inside the planet. She cooks soup in the volcanic wells that lie under the pointed chimney hills at the edge of the copper tree wood. She cooks red soup, green soup and sometimes even purply-blue soup.

The Clangers are her friends and are glad she is there because soup is their favourite food. In fact, apart from the blue-string pudding that grows on the roof, it is their only food. Luckily it has been calculated that there is enough soup in the wells to last the Clangers for another 7,384,497,003 years, if they are careful.
