Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

A traveler stops at a lonely cottage, hoping to scrounge a bed for the night. The grumpy old woman who lives there offers him the floor, but insists theres no food in the house. “In that case,” declares the traveler, “Ill have to share what Ive got with you.” He pulls a rusty old nail from his pocket and starts to make — nail soup! All it needs is a garnish or two . . . This delightful cover of an age-old yarn proves that a merry heart and generous soul produce far better results than whines and demands. Paul Hesss quirky, stylish illustrations are the perfect complement to the texts deadpan wit.
