This story is about two pigs named Molly and Max, who seemed to have been
walking for a long time. When they got too tired, they came to a village and
stopped. Not only were they tired, but they were also hungry. They see a
lady, her baby, and a butcher first. They butcher hid his meat and the lady
and her baby screamed. The banker saw them and his money. The village
innkeeper hid his keys. The farmer's wife hid her garden vegetables when she
saw them. the townspeople hid all of their food when they saw them also.
They decided to get everyone's attention by ringing the town bell. When the
townspeople heard the bell they all came running to see what was going on.
Max and Moly told them how to make stone soup. They all gave Molly and Max
their food to put into the soup. The people were stupid because they thought
that the soup had been made from a stone. In other words, they had ben
tricked. The innkeeper even gave them a room for sleep.
I think that you
should read this book because it teaches a great lesson told at the end of
the story. When the townspeople asked how they could thank them, Max and
Molly told them to share their stone soup with everyone.
The pictures were
cute and went well with the story. I think that it is important for people
to share and learn to love and trust one another.
