The stonecutter stood before the stone, deciding where to begin.
When at last he chose the proper spot, he drove the chisel into the stone with the hammer.
The work was long, slow, and difficult. . . .
“Each morning I go out to cut stones again, just as I have done my entire life. Is there nothing more for me?”
Out of print for over a decade, Jon J Muth and John Kuramoto's timelessadaptation of a Chinese folktale begins with a man's dissatisfaction with his life. Weary of being a stonecutter, he becomes many things in his quest for authority, each time finding that greater power lies elsewhere. Age Range: 10 and up.
