Jun 14, Manybooks rated it really liked it Recommends it for: As someone who generally likes and actually much prefers lushly coloured and hued illustrations, I was not expecting to enjoy Marcia Brown's version of the European folktale of Stone Soup as much as I have. The illustrations really are wonderful attention to detail, captured movement, realistic facial expressions , and the simple combination of white, black, grey and orange shades works surprisingly well.

A more than succesful marriage of text and image and if an author's note had been included As someone who generally likes and actually much prefers lushly coloured and hued illustrations, I was not expecting to enjoy Marcia Brown's version of the European folktale of Stone Soup as much as I have.

A more than succesful marriage of text and image and if an author's note had been included, my now four star rating would most definitely have been moved to five stars the mere fact that Marcia Brown's Stone Soup , that this Caldecott Honour book is still in current print, that alone already speaks volumes. The illustrations notwithstanding, I am also pleasantly surprised by the story itself.

The author's Marcia Brown's version of the the Stone Soup thematics clearly demonstrate that the peasants the villagers do not simply fear strangers in general, they specifically fear strangers who are soldiers. They might not want to share, and might even be a bit xenophobic, but first and foremost, the villagers are afraid of losing most, if not all of their stored foodstuff to the soldiers and they could obviously not know in advance that the soldiers are, in fact, friendly.

In the end, the three soldiers manage to get the food they require neither by resorting to violence and threats nor do they simply search for the hidden provisions and take what they want, but rather by being able to entice the village to share what they have.

The communal feast of stone soup not only celebrates sharing, it also celebrates community, friendship and the fact that one can achieve more by using one's wits. And above all, the soldiers are not only able to stay their hunger, the village is left with a much more positive impression regarding not only strangers, but soldiers in particular.

I especially enjoyed the unhurried pace of Stone Soup almost like watching a pot of soup or stew cook, no pun intended, well, perhaps slightly and the fact that the villagers all have names, that they are not simply anonymous individuals; this personalises the narrative and allows for exposition and speculation. For example, if I were reading this story aloud to a child or a group of children , I might engage the audience by asking who of the villagers thinks that their grain needed to be hidden Vincent and Marie , and why they might have thought this.

And while I would have also preferred and still prefer the three soldiers not to have been anonymous, this in no way lessened or lessens my enjoyment of the tale, or rather, of the Stone Soup adaptation. All in all, a much engaging at times thought-provoking picture book offering and vert highly recommended both for children and adults!

The villagers learn of this ahead of time and stow away anything that might be useful for the soldiers. Upon arriving in town, the soldiers discover that none of the households is hospitable and there is nothing to share. The soldiers concoct a plan to have a fire built and a large soup pot placed at the town square.

Working on the egos of the villagers, the soldiers are able to fill the soup with more than just stones, until a veritable feast is presented. Interesting tactics as Neo was left to wonder who was fooled in the end.

I think I will remember to read this story in a year or two and see if he picks up on some of the nuances. Mar 31, David Schaafsma rated it really liked it Shelves: The classic version I read and loved with my family in the fifties!

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. There's some real magic, as Calista points out, as potentially tense and isolating relations turn into a celebration.

Some versions have the villagers as dim-witted country bumpkins, outsmarted by the smarter, more sophisticated big-city soldiers, but that's not how this version feels to me. You can't read it without smiling. An endorsement of community and a welcoming of strangers. Apr 06, Calista rated it really liked it Shelves: To me, this is a story about perspective. The villagers didn't want to feel like they were feeding more 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.

I loved this story as a child and to me it To me, this is a story about perspective. I 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.

A classic that teaches that greed can sometimes leave you with nothing, if you will not share - should this be yet another book on the 'to read' list for politicians?

Mar 16, Rachel rated it liked it Shelves: This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Ha ha! This seemed like a political fable to me! It was a town full of selfish capitalists. 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, including a glorious pot roast.

The townspeopl Ha ha! They find that when they pool their resources together, there is more than enough for everyone. If Marcia Brown is still alive on earth when the Rapture comes, she will surely be punished for writing a story that teaches children the joy of sharing.

Apr 21, Ronyell rated it liked it Shelves: Marcia Brown has done a great job at illustrating this book as the images are mainly displayed in red, grey, white and black colors as most of her books have mainly three or four colors for the images. Marcia Brown makes the characters look realistic as they have real human expressions and body structures and the highlighted images in this book are of the three soldiers as they wear red and black French army suits from the s and they always looked calm and gentle in each image.

Some children might not enjoy this story due the fact that the story is a bit too slow paced. I would recommend this book to children ages five or up since the pace of this book might bore smaller children. Oct 19, Kristine Hansen rated it really liked it Shelves: I remember reading this book when I was very young and thinking how clever the soldiers were, and how utterly idiotic the villagers were to not realize they were being tricked.

This story is still fun to read as an adult, and I enjoyed the pictures with new appreciation that gives hints to place and time that I hadn't realized before. Maybe there's a history lesson in here too? Either way, there's a lot more here than meets the eye - the distrust the villagers have for the soldiers for example.

Definitely was worth another look. Jun 29, Kathryn rated it really liked it. Marcia 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 around. I wasn't especially drawn to the words in Brown's tale, but the illustrations certainly are captivating and lend such sense of atmosphere and charm to the tale.

Oct 15, Lana Hoffman rated it it was amazing Shelves: Three soldiers use their wits to feed their hungry stomachs. This book is very clever. The illustrations are made up of only black, white, and red. They appear to be popping off the pages.

There are some important lessons taught in this book. Children learn that being clever and using your brain to solve a problem is greatly rewarded. The value of sharing and giving to others in need are also expressed in this story. Overall, children will learn that when they give to others and share, like the t Three soldiers use their wits to feed their hungry stomachs. Overall, children will learn that when they give to others and share, like the towns people did in Stone Soup, something truley special can be created.

As a teacher, I would have my younger students, grades k-3 create their own "Stone Soup". Everyone would contribute something special to the soup and as a class we would enjoy it together.

The illustrations displayed the mood of the scenes very well.

The townspeople had reason to fear the soldiers. The soldiers had to come up with a clever way to convince the people they weren't there to harm them. This book has a great lesson on sharing and how much more wonderful something could be by doing so. Everyone coming together to add what little they had I am tickled by the fact that one story could be told in so many variations and all of them stand apart to be their own charming tale.

At first the villagers didn't want to share their foods or a place for the 3 soldiers to sleep but once the solders tricks them about stone soup, they all came together and help one another and share their food.

Great old tale that demonstrates how when we all give a little, we all get a lot. Although there seem to be any number of picture-books involving soup made with stones - Jon J. Muth's recent Stone Soup , for instance - this retelling of the traditional French variant of the tale is the one I grew up with, and it holds a special place in my heart!

The story of three hungry soldiers, who, returning home from "the wars," find themselves in a village determined not to feed them, it is part trickster tale, part fable. Young readers will enjoy following the soldiers' ingenious met Although there seem to be any number of picture-books involving soup made with stones - Jon J.

Young readers will enjoy following the soldiers' ingenious method of procuring dinner, while also learning that resources go further, and produce a deeper sense of enjoyment, when they are shared.

Book Reviews

Originally published in , Stone Soup was was chosen as a Caldecott Honor Book, and it's not difficult to see why! Bold illustrations, colored in black and orange, perfectly capture the droll humor of the story. These soldiers know what they're about, and - looking at Marcia Brown's artwork - so does the reader.

Highly recommended, to young folklore lovers, and to those who appreciate a somewhat vintage illustration style! Mar 18, Sandra Couch rated it it was amazing. Three hungry soldiers on their way home from the war are hungry and tired. They stop in a town asking if anyone can provide food and a bed to sleep in, while they all answer no.

Desperate, both tired and hungry they outwit the townspeople and find a way to get food and a bed for the night. The main theme in this picture is the importance of sharing and being generous with others. We see this in the beginning when the townspeople were not willing to share with the soldiers and hid Summary: We see this in the beginning when the townspeople were not willing to share with the soldiers and hid their food, but once they shared, it created a special connection between them.

For example, after the town feasted on food, drinks and danced for the night, each solder got the best beds in the village to sleep in because the townspeople saw how generous and wise they were.

This shows children that good things can come to those who share and are generous to others. The author did a great job combining the lesson in with the overall story. The plot is told in a chronological way because everything happens in the order that it would happen in real life. The soldiers arrive to the town, eat dinner, have some fun and go to bed. Although they encounter a person to person conflict in the way that the townspeople were unwilling to give them food and shelter, this is quickly resolved by reverse psychology.

There are only 4 colors used throughout the illustrations: Depending upon the placement of the colors on specific pages dictates the overall mood and shifts the focus to certain characters. This also engages the reader in what is occurring in the story. For example, in one scene we see a woman hiding cabbage and potatoes under a bed with her children standing behind her.

By the author highlighting these areas, it allows the reader to focus on these objects and read into the story a little. For example, the bed plays an important role because later we see this same character go back and get the cabbage that she hid. We can also see the orange on the sac her son is holding is filled with potatoes and he is waiting to hand them to his mother. This allows us to see that they have more than enough food and just how greedy they are being.

Also, the amount of black and white used in the images gives the reader a sense of the setting and the time period. I immediately connected the black and white with black and white televisions which hints that this story is not set in modern times. The lines in this book provide texture to what appears to be straw in their homes, emotions to the characters faces, and brings the soldiers hair to life.

These same curved lines can be connected to the ones we see inside the home when they are hiding their food. I think the author did this on purpose to suggest that the townspeople are not all the bad that they seem to be when we are introduced to the beginning.

Explanation of Traditional Tale: Traditional tales are ones that are passed down orally a part of a tradition or a culture. A folktale is included in a traditional tale since it is heard by the teller and retold in their own words. Most people in those times were probably afraid of what soldiers were going to be like coming back from war. This folktale is a good representation that not everyone changes and that they are still kind and generous toward other people.

The characters are flat and do not change in the story. The townspeople are flat characters who only change their mindset throughout the course of the story as they give the soldiers food for the stone soup. The plot of folktales is usually resolved with acts of human kindness as we see from the festive night that the soldiers create and sharing of their food. For example, the cover of the book shows a soldier and a man and women around the pot of stone soup with smiles on their faces looking like they are enjoying their evening.

There are bouts of orange in different parts of their clothing and in the soup which intrigued me. Overall, I really liked this book I liked the main message and the portrayal of the townspeople turned from greedy to giving. I also liked the medium that the author chose, I think the pencil sketching combined with orange watercolor brings the characters to life. Apr 02, Nicole rated it really liked it Shelves: I revisited this classic tale upon finding it while cleaning out my office space.

It sends an explicit message of the power of teamwork and working together, and the effects of greed. Mar 21, Cody rated it it was amazing Shelves: Gotta love it. Mar 26, Charlotte Stevens rated it really liked it.

This is the retelling of a traditional French tale in which 3 soldiers who are very hungry come across a village of peasants looking for food and shelter.

The villagers are very reluctant to help these strangers and decide to hide all their food and explain that there are no beds available. The illustrations are quite unusual for typic This is the retelling of a traditional French tale in which 3 soldiers who are very hungry come across a village of peasants looking for food and shelter.

Firstly the colour are limited to white, grey, black and red which draws your eye towards the action in the picture. The dull colours in contrast emphasise the povety of the land and the mindset of the villagers which begins as being very fixed.

As the story develops so does the mindset of the peasants which is represented though the increase of red which becomes more vivid by the end. The villagers reluctance to accept the soldiers represents the theme of xenophobia within a community. The peasants fear the outsider, having preconceived ideas about them. This is a bridge we are still trying to gap in present day London.

In the story the villagers fear the unknown believing that the soldier will steal their food and could potentially resort to violence. However their curiosity takes hold when the soldiers reveal their intentions to feed the village. Want to Read Currently Reading Read. Other editions. Enlarge cover. Error rating book.

They ask all around the town for some food but the whole town has put up their food and they are unwilling to share with the travelers. So the two pigs make a magical soup called stone soup which most of the town eventually contributes to.

Sep 28, Jenna Jeffries rated it liked it Shelves: In Stone Soup, Molly and Max are two travellers looking for a hot meal and a place to sleep. When they arrive at a nearby village, everybody shuts them out by telling them that there is no food and no place to stay. Before long, food is shared and the innkeeper gives Molly and Max the best room at his hotel in a way to thank them for the incredible meal.

With just a little made-up recipe, Molly and Max were able to teach the villagers how to share. There are many variations to this story, and any case would do for a child. Using this story would not only engage and excite young readers with the step-by-step illustrations, but it would put the important idea of sharing into their minds. Jan 21, Lisa rated it it was amazing Shelves: This was my favorite book as a child, and I still have to copy that I was given when I was young.

I loved the illustrations and the telling of the story more so than other versions. This retelling is more simplistic and friendly with the illustrations of the traveling Max and Molly in their quest to make their 'secret recipe'. I have used this story in the classroom to emphasize the importance of sharing and caring for one and another. I have also utalized this book to introduce writing prompts This was my favorite book as a child, and I still have to copy that I was given when I was young.

This familiar folktale could also be combined into a unit where various adaptations of the story can be explored and compared as it is written in many different settings.

Feb 18, Tishandra Mayfield rated it it was amazing. This is a book that I have read numerous times. I love to hear how these pigs showed the villagers the value of sharing. They really brought this town together. I think thast children will love to hear this story. My mom used to read this story to me all the time.

The illustrations are good. This book always makes me hungry and gets me in the mind of making vegetable soup. Have each child to bring in a different vegetable. Let the children help to prepare vegetable soup. Discuss why it is import This is a book that I have read numerous times. Discuss why it is important to eat vegetables and how beneficial they are to our bodies.

Dec 20, Casey Anderson rated it it was amazing. Loved this book. Read it hundreds of times as a child. This book taught me about sharing with others who had none! The power of a community when it comes together!
