Aston’s stonesLotta Geffenblad, illustrated by Lotta Geffenblad
Aston feels sorry for all the lonely stones he sees, so he picks them up and brings them home and takes care of them. Every day he finds a new one; how strange that there are always new stones who are lonely, or bored or cold.
It soon gets crowded at Aston’s house. Mummy and daddy get quite tired of all the stones, and one day daddy suggests that the stones go on a vacation, to the beach. The stones seem to like it, they roll on the sand and some of them take a bath.
Aston seems quite satisfied, but when he comes back to the car, mummy and daddy hear something in the bag: “It’s a stick, it was so lonely”, Aston says. “After all, there are only stones around here.”
