KIRKUS REVIEW

 Two grand debuts: Librarian Patron tells her unique version of ``Stone Soup'' with humor and panache, her characters ``a crowd of five rowdy bad boys'' (hungry, too) who accost a mellow, wise old man--who sends them to their mothers to ask ``kindly'' for just a carrot, etc., for his miraculous stew. Shenon's California-style setting, bold, sure line, and amusingly deft characterizations round out this amiable update. Perfect for story hour or any other time. (Picture book. 4-9)
