Chili'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.
