Bone Soup by Cambria Evans


Evans, Cambria Bone Soup. Houghton Mifflin, 2008. PICTURE BOOK. A scary, ravenous Eater, Finnigan, has a reputation of eating towns out of house and home. A quaking village hides all their food from him, but when Finnigan prepares a pot of bone soup, he will need everyone's cooperation to make a satisfying feast. Stone Soup meets Halloween in this gently twisted version. It makes for a lightly spooky tale with the same, important message. EL - ESSENTIAL. Cindy, Library-Teacher
