About This Book
Once upon a time a poor unfortunate man lived with his mother, his wife, and his
six children in a one-room hut. Because they were so crowded, the children often
fought and the man and his wife argued. When the poor man was unable to stand it
any longer, he ran to the Rabbi for help. As he follows the Rabbi's unlikely
advice, the poor man's life goes from bad to worse, with increasingly uproarious
results. In his little hut, silly calamity follows foolish catastrophe, all
memorably depicted in full-color illustrations that are both funnier and
lovelier than any this distinguished artist has done in the past.
From Publishers Weekly
A wise rabbi doles out surprising advice to a man complaining of overcrowded quarters in this Yiddish folktale; Zemach's exuberantly chaotic illustrations earned her a Caldecott Honor.
