A Big Quiet House
A Yiddish Folktale from Eastern Europe

An old Yiddish folktale from Eastern Europe which features a wise adviser who comically inspires a man to view his troubles with some objectivity. A lilting text makes this a fine read-aloud for young listeners, and the ending of the story proves, as so many ancient folktales do, that quite often, nonsense makes the best sense of all. (Softcover & Hardcover) American Booksellers Pick of the Lists 1996.
