‘I want you to build me a wall with only perfect stones,’ the big architect said.
All the stones tried to put their best faces forward. They hid their ugly bits. But there was one stone that didn’t seem to fit. He was the ‘Wrong Stone’ and all the others laughed at him. Was he destined for the crusher!?
