    Free Stone Soup kindle ò eBook Paperback Stone SoupThe classic 1947 version I read and loved with my family in the fifties re released in 2005 beautiful illustrated in a classic style with subtlety Based on a French tale I just saw Calista's review and pulled this off my shelf Goodreads reviewer Manybooks reminds me that an interesting aspect of the classic tale is that soldiers typically could take whatever they wanted as they walked into a town so of course villagers would have a reason to hoard their food especially in a time of war The ruse of the three soldiers to make stone soup as a way of urging each villager to bring in some food for the communal soup makes the relationship between the villagers and soldiers sweet T

    Free Stone Soup kindle ò eBook Paperback Stone SoupTo me this is a story about perspective The villagers didn't want to feel like they were feeding hungry soldiers and getting nothing They hide away their food So the soldiers change the perspective and say they will feed the village It is silly to think the stones will feed people but they create a feast for everyone to join in with Everyone came together and ate together danced together The soldiers did give the village some a festivalI loved this story as a child and to me it seems to have a bit of magic in it now It's the ability to let people see a situation in a new way so everyone benefits Great story The illustrations are nothing to be excited about It is very simple and not really much style in my opinion

    Free Stone Soup kindle ò eBook Paperback Stone SoupHa ha This seemed like a political fable to me It was a town full of selfish capitalists When three hungry soldiers go passing through these wonderful townspeople hide ALL OF THEIR FOOD and refuse to share one single morsel I mean come on how much can 3 soldiers eat? The soldiers trick the townspeople into adding a little bit of this and a little bit of that into the stone soup such that the people eventually come out with tons of food

    Free Stone Soup kindle ò eBook Paperback Stone SoupMarcia Brown version features three hungry soldiers returning from war as the stone soup makers and the villagers are at first afraid that the soldiers will take all their food so they hide it The soldiers instead use a magic stone to start the soup and show the townspeople that there is enough food to go aroundI wasn't especially drawn to the words in Brown's tale but the illustrations certainly are captivating and lend such sense of atmosphere
