Illustrated by: Christoph Brown
In this positive retelling of a classic tale, a cheerful young traveler comes upon a town facing a difficult depression. The townspeople are grumpy and worried about feeding their families, but the traveler has a secret he hopes can help them out in more ways than one! Nobody believes him when he says he can make a delicious soup using a stone as the main ingredient, but they are intrigued. As the traveler comments that adding extra ingredients such as carrots or onions would really make the best stone soup, the townspeople's generosity begins to shine though! Can the townspeople set aside their fears and learn how to help one another as members of the community through the hard times?
