Jewish Values: It Could Always Be Worse

32 p.
Note: 
A classic Yiddish story is retold and illustrated with distinction by Margot Zemach. As the tale of a man with a very crowded house unfolds, the pictures extend across the double page spreads, growing more rollicking and more boisterous as the house itself becomes more crowded. When peace is finally restored, the house itself looks at rest. This is one of several versions of a tale about rabbinic wisdom and contentment.
