Three little witches and a bunch of spooky characters come together to prepare a delicious batch of Bone Soup in this Halloween tale based on the beloved fable, Stone Soup. This just-scary-enough picture book comes with a recipe for Bone Soup—perfect for Halloween eating. 

Trick-or-treat? Trick-or-treat! 
We’ve something usually good to eat! 

One Halloween morning three witches are looking for a tasty treat and they find only a small bone in their cupboard. So they decide to go from door to door in their village to find just the right ingredients for their Bone Soup. No one in the village is convinced that soup can be made from a bone, until the littlest monster reveals just what the special ingredient should be.



Alyssa Satin Capucilli’s Bone Soup gives the classic Stone Soup a frightfully fun and spooktastic Halloween twist as three charming witches set out to make one special soup with the help of some surprising monsters. 

Bone Soup is a deliciously delightful picture book that will bewitch little readers and tickle their funny bones. Capucilli takes the beloved Stone Soup fable and wonderfully weaves it into something fresh and fun. Illustrator Tom Knight cleverly creates a perfect Halloween splashed world and little readers will have so much fun exploring his engaging pictures. 

Bubbling with whimsy, fantastical spookiness, three adorable and lovable little witchy heroines, an amusing pack of monsters, and a yummy recipe for the title soup, Bone Soup is the perfect picture book to share this time of year!

"what spooky fun ingredient would YOU add to Bone Soup?" Squamous foot worts from the sole of a witch's foot.

A little eye of newt or hair of hag would spice the soup up!
