A Yiddish folktale about a noisy house is reimagined for a new generation in this story, set in a library, about a young patron who’s reminded by the enthusiastic librarian, Miss Understood, to appreciate what he has, because circumstances could always be worse. Children will laugh out loud at the story’s escalating antics, while those familiar with the original will appreciate the faithful interpretation and retention of Jewish customs, not to mention the charm of the illustrations.
