Three wise monks trick a poor, frightened community into finding happiness by teaching them the magic of generosity.

Scholastic
Three strangers, hungry and tired, pass through a war-torn village. Embittered and suspicious from the war, the people hide their food and close their windows tight. That is, until the clever strangers suggest making a soup from stones. Intrigued by the idea, everyone brings what they have until-- together, they have made a feast fit for a king!

In this inspiring story about the strength people possess when they work together, Muth takes a simple, beloved tale and adds his own fresh twist.

Good story about how people can feel better about themselves when all they have to do is get the focus off themselves and on sharing and helping others . Very good .
