The three monks came to a suffering village. The villagers had been suffering for many years, their hearts becoming hardened and as such, they were unwilling to accept anyone into their town. However, the monks used the method of boiled stone soup to soften the villagers' hearts and to help them understand the truth that the more you give, the more you are rewarded. Jon Muth uses gorgeous watercolors to encourage readers to ponder the truth behind every story. He incorporates his love for Zen and Eastern culture into this ancient story of ingenuity to promote the power of generosity.
