Reviews

K-Gr 3‘In this ethnic variation of "Stone Soup," a hungry beggar comes to a poor town on a cold and snowy evening. No door is opened to him until he sees a light and enters the synagogue. The shamas does not answer his greeting so the beggar takes the five buttons off his coat and asks for one more in order to make Bone Button Borscht. Bowls, cups, ladles, and a pot wouldn't hurt either, he explains. As the shamas goes from door to door seeking the ingredients, the incredulous townspeople gather round and provide the food that will make the soup just a little more tasty. Such a miracle. Such a joyous feast. The stranger then goes on his way with better buttons on his coat and the townspeople left with a better spirit of neighborliness. The retelling provides a satisfying Eastern European setting for a classic folktale. Watercolor and pencil drawings help to flavor the stew.‘Susan Pine, New York Public Library
