From the Publisher:
Three strangers, hungry and tired, pass through a war-torn village. Embittered and suspicious from the war, the people hide their food and close their windows tight. That is, until the clever strangers suggest making a soup from stones. Intrigued by the idea, everyone brings what they have until-- together, they have made a feast fit for a king! In this inspiring story about the strength people possess when they work together, Muth takes a simple, beloved tale and adds his own fresh twist.Three strangers, hungry and tired, pass through a war-torn village.

Annotation:
This retelling of the classic tale about a special soup that can be made using only water and stones sets the story in China and transforms the characters of the soldiers into three Buddhist monks. When the monks visit a village where many people are starving but a few have food that they are refusing to share, they teach everyone a gentle lesson about the joys of sharing with others. Color illustrations accompany the text.
