Stone Man Stone House Author:Anne Merrick Epstein All alone on a hot summer day, a child discovers a stone man lying in the grass. He has a rough sort of face and smile, and whispers that he too is alone. Together they build a stone house with pine cone petals for the floor and daisy petals for a soft bed. At the end of a busy day they sit quietly, watching the darkness come. Then the stone man... more » goes into his new house for the night. Later the child lies in bed, thinking of the stone man and "of the world I have made outside...how it was just waiting there for me to come along and put it together."
