Amazon Description

Chile's good, so is barbecue, but nothing's finer than FANDANGO STEW!
No money? No problem! In this sunny, funny western-style take on the famous folktale “Stone Soup,” two penniless but wily vaqueros (cowboys) trick a whole town into cooking a giant pot of stew for everyone to share.
David Davis's deliciously colorful language and Ben Galbraith's delightful illustrations make this picture book a tasty confection.

One Potato Review

Fulsomely adapted from the classic Stone Soup - about making something out of nothing except community. Here is the treatment this fable has always deserved: crowded and picaresque, with a grifter’s flair for persuasion.
