Ranchland gnomes Tumbles and Hilda, and their twins River and Kit, help gophers afraid of a rattlesnake.
The classic folk tale Stone Soup is about soldiers traveling home after a war. The villagers they meet are afraid of strangers and have forgotten how to be neighbors. Stoen Soup, like all great folktales, has a perennial and new relevance for 2021.
This version is especially for Tales from the Lilypad by Marlene Wurfel.
