Booklist Review

Ages 4^-8. Brown's version of the old tale about the soldiers who trick villagers who had denied them food into providing all the ingredients--except the stones--for soup fit for a king is simply told and illustrated with colorful action pictures that carry the story's flavor and underlying humor.


Publisher's Weekly Review

This old French tale about soldiers who trick miserly villages into making them a feast won a Caldecott Medal when Brown retold and illustrated it in 1947. (4-7) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
