These are two traditional stories around getting the ingredients to make soup.
In the first one, retold in a famous version by Aleksey Tolstoy, who will help grandpa pull up a huge turnip to make soup for his family? In the second, of central European origin, how can a poor man make a delicious soup? Both stories have a strong strand of humour but underlying them are important messages about being ready to ask for and to give help, about the importance of teamwork … And about using your imagination and ingenuity.
