When a young serf is caught stealing, the lord of the manor sentences him to service in the Jewish ghetto, where he discovers unexpected kindness. This tale of tolerance set in old Prague is accompanied by distinctive illustrations by Ben Shahn. Its return to print after 25 years will be welcomed by teachers and other educators. Reprint of the Pantheon, New York, 1963 edition.
Illustrations: There are 17 Ben Shahn illustrations, from portraits of people, to designs depicting the city. Each is produced in the deceptively simple but lively style of mid-century book illustration.

Havenít finished reading it yet but it is delightful. Only wish there had been more illustrations.
