 About the Book 

Angus and Jack must move with their mother to a smaller house. When they complain, Mother turns to a wise woman for advice. The woman recommends inviting the dogs inside to play, asking the relatives to stay, and hosting a sleepover. Bedlam breaksMoreAngus and Jack must move with their mother to a smaller house. When they complain, Mother turns to a wise woman for advice. The woman recommends inviting the dogs inside to play, asking the relatives to stay, and hosting a sleepover. Bedlam breaks out. Quite distraught, Mother revisits the woman, who says, Send everyone home now. In this retelling of a Yiddish folk tale, Ann Blades riffs in rhyme on the theme everythings relative. Building situation upon situation, the story, illustrated in whimsical watercolors, reaches a wild crescendo and peaceful resolution.
