by Ann McGovern Illustrated by Winslow Pinney Pels
Whimsical illustrations and text with helpful repetition describe how a young vagabond gets an old lady to feed him by making soup from a stone. Through the boy’s clever ways, the lone ingredient is soon joined by onions, carrots, beef bones, and more. Part of the Easy-to-Read Folktale series.
