From the Publisher
Annotation In this classic tale, three soldiers visiting a town whose residents claim they have no food to spare make delicious soup from nothing but water and a stone.
First Line Three soldiers trudged down a road in a strange country. They were on their way home from the wars. Besides being tired, they were hungry. In fact they had eaten nothing for two days.
Annotation 2 It's been a long and hard war, and three soldiers are making their way back home. Tired and hungry, the soldiers come across a small village, but the residents there, worried that the soldiers will seize all their food, claim to have no provisions to share. Then the soldiers surprise the villagers: they ask for a large cooking pot filled with water, three round, smooth stones, and a hot fire on which they can cook their stone soup. Intrigued, the villagers watch the soldiers prepare this unusual meal, and soon the clever soldiers are able to convince them to contribute such other items as carrots, cabbage, and even a bit of beef. The soup smells so good, and the soldiers have made so much of it, that the entire village is able to sit down for a delicious feast featuring soup made from hot water and three stones. Set in France, this picture book features three-color illustrations and is a 1948 Caldecott Honor Book.
