Stevie craves quiet until he meets Miss Understood, a magical librarian whose books come to life and wreak havoc in this modern-day twist on an old Yiddish folk tale.
Begins with a retelling of the original "It Could Always Be Worse" folktale. And then the characters wander out of the shtetl and into the Whisper Oaks Public Library.
Like a Jewish "Where's Waldo". There are so many fun and funny details hidden in Esther van den Berg's out-of-this-world illustrations.
(Have you ever seen a rabbi on a flying trapeze? Well, you will now!)
