From Publishers Weekly
A wise rabbi doles out surprising advice to a man complaining of overcrowded quarters in this Yiddish folktale; Zemach's exuberantly chaotic illustrations earned her a Caldecott Honor. Ages 3-up.
Copyright 1990 Reed Business Information, Inc.
“The familiar tale of the simple villager whose house was so crowded and noisy, he went to the Rabbi for help. . .Never has the tale been made into a picture book of such beauty and gusto.” ―Starred, The Horn Book

It would make a poor gift presentation but I bought it for my grandkids and they won't even notice. They look at the pictures, not technical deficiencies.
I'm only posting this as a heads up to anyone wanting to buy it as a gift. I probably could have returned it but what's the point: It could always be worse! ;)
