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.  
Key Selling Points:
A great read-aloud trickster tale
Award-winning author whose books have twice appeared on the Children's Choice Top 100 list
Offers a gentle message about sharing and community-building
