STONE SOUP

KIRKUS REVIEW

Retelling of a folk tale which is as flavorsome as the soup it tells about. Three hungry soldiers, denied food by the wary and over-thrifty French peasants, make a wonderful stone soup which feeds the entire village. Great good fun in a folksy feeling as small listeners feel infinitely wiser than the grown-up peasants. Lots of activity in romping, jolly pictures and the un laughter at the end. Gay soldiers in red coats and impressive looking hate, children, animals, cobbled streets and a French village feel make this a pleasant choice for a gift book- as well as worth while for a permanent library shelf.
