This traditional story from Japan has been beautifully and simply retold by Sean Taylor. The familiar "grass is greener" theme is taken to its furthest limit before the stone cutter discovers he can be content by just being himself. The book's stunning illustrations, by Serena Curmi, effortlessly capture the traditional Japanese setting. Pages 14 and 15 feature a flowchart tracking the stone cutter's transformation. This offers children the opportunity to recap their comprehension of the story and retell it in their own words.
