Stone Soup: A Traditional Tale from Sweden. I.

Hawes, Alison. Stone Soup: A Traditional Tale from Sweden. I. 2000

This is a folktale about a man who likes to play tricks.  He comes to a town and tries to sell stone soup (a pot of water with a stone in it) to the townspeople.  The people don’t believe him at first but come over to see how he is able to make it.  He tricks the people into giving him all of the other ingredients he needs to make the soup and then sells it to them.
