Note: 
This off-beat and ambitious story shows the effects of mental illness on a family and on individual creativity. It is set sometime after the Holocaust and the protagonist's father is a Holocaust survivor who is haunted by his memories. Few stories for children deal with the relationship between art and experience, much less mental illness, and this does it well except that it is universalized to the extent that neither the family's Jewish identity nor the Holocaust as a specific experience are named.
