The Stone By: Lloyd Alexander

Madrona: She is maibon's wife and helps maibon
relize he needs to think for his family before himself. she also helps maibon realize there is more to life than old age.
Maibon a normal farmer walks upon an ancient man on the road and starts thinking about how old he will become. Along his journey he finds a red-haired dwarf that is stuck under a log. Maibon frees the dwarf and asks him if he could be granted one wish. Maibon tells the dwarf he wants a stone that will keep him young for eternity the dwarf tries to persuade Maibon to pick a more useful wish but Maibon wouldn't budge. Once Maibon has the stone everything and everyone around Maibon stop growing. Maibon's wife "Marona" helps Maibon realize what is going to happen if he doesn't get rid of the stone. Maibon walks upon the dwarf and asks if he could return the stone. The dwarf replies " you cant get rid of the stone unless you really want to get rid of it." Maibon does as the dwarf says and everthing goes back to normal.

Doli: He is a little dwarf that grants wishes. he is the one who gave maibon the stone. he is very tricky and clever and tries to help maibon make a wise decision.
Recommend
I would defiantly recommend this story because i think it really teaches people a lesson about growing up and showing that you cant change time. Your just going to have to live with it and wait to see what comes next.
Favorite Quote
My favorite quote in the story is when Doli told Maibon " you didn't want to change with the rest of the world." I think this quote means that Maibon was trying to get rid of the stone to help his family, but for himself to stay young and not change. So really Maibon wanted everything to go the same but for himself to stay the same.
IS CHANGE AND GROWTH A GOOD THING?
i THINK CHANGE AND GROTH IS A GOOD THUING BECAUSE WHEN YOU GROW UP YOU MAKE MISTAKES AND LATER ON YOU LEARN FROM THEM. YES YOU MAY GROW OLD AND NOT BE ABLE TO DO THINGS ANYMORE BUT YOU HAVE OTHER privileges TOO! SO TAKE YOUR CHANCES AND DO WHAT YOU WANT TO DO AND LIVE YOUR LIFE UNTIL THE END!
