Book Description: Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Included. 1st Edition. 1st edition hardcover with dustjacket 2003 Michael Di Capua Books / Hyperion. Light store shelfwear to jacket. Superclean; no marks; pages bright; binding tight; never read. Ca. 52 pages (pages not numbered); color illustrations. Language: English. For ages ca. 4-up; adult help recommended. 'A picture book based on a 1938 Czech opera, originally performed by the children of Terezin. A brother and sister try to get milk for their sick mother. They sing for coins in the town square, but Brundibar the organ grinder drowns out their words with his teeth- chattery bone-rattley horrible song. Pepicek and Aninku then join voices with 300 other children and earn enough coins to fill their soon-to-be- milkbucket. The playful language, with occasional rhyme and alliteration, is a perfect match for Sendak's spirited young heroes. The illustrations reflect varied undertones of a powerful story that works on different levels, including many references to the Holocaust. Scenes in the town show rich adults ignoring the desperate siblings, while other children also suffer from hunger. A banner matches a sign that covered the gates of Auschwitz, and several townsfolk wear yellow Stars of David. Brundibar vaguely resembles Hitler, particularly in one scene where he appears, huge and purple faced, with a clenched fist. A wordless spread showing grieving parents is poignant in itself, but tragic within the Holocaust context. Most kids won't get the literal references, but will respond directly to the images of the ominous, yet hopeful world depicted. In the end everyone sings triumphantly that the wicked never win and our friends make us strong, but a final scribbled message from Brundibar promises that he'll be back. This is an ambitious picture book that succeeds both as a simple children's story and as a compelling statement against tyranny.'--Steven Engelfried, School Library Journal.
