Genre: Juvenile Fiction

Two hungry travelers arrive at a village expecting to find a household that will share a bit of food, as has been the custom along their journey. To their surprise, villager after villager refuses to share, each one closing the door with a bang. As they sit to rest beside a well, one of the travelers observes that if the townspeople have no food to share, they must be "in greater need than we are." With that, the travelers demonstrate their special recipe for a magical soup, using a stone as a starter. All they need is a carrot, which a young girl volunteers. Not to be outdone, another villager contributes a potato, and the soup grows as others bring corn, celery, and other vegetables and seasonings. In this cumulative retelling of an ancient and widely circulated legend, author Heather Forest shows us that when each person makes a small contribution, “the collective impact can be huge.” Susan Gaber's paintings portray the optimism and timelessness of a story that celebrates teamwork and generosity

On a cold night a storyteller who knew the limitless power of words visited a famine-Stricken village and, finding no fireside for a fable, began boiling a stone in a big pot in sight of everyone. One by one the curious villagers were encouraged to join in the feast of Stone Soup and one by one they believed in and contributed to the feast that inevitably resulted. Once both stories and soup had been devoured it was agreed that in future, in tough times, a stone and a story were a marvellous way to bring people together. Stone Soup is a modern fable about business, community, entrepreneurship and sharing. Mixing a traditional folktale with telling the story of one woman's journey through life, it contains tasty morsels of wisdom on work, team-building, leadership and courage. This book will nourish the soul of managers, entrepreneurs, community leaders, activists and educators by giving you the fortitude to lead fearlessly in the face of apparently insurmountable obstacles and foster true innovation within your community, group or organisation.
