Summary
A huge talking bird, a friendly giant, and other fantastic creatures help David find his missing grandfather and discover the lessons every Jewish boy should know
Summary
Maurice Sendak's father first tells "the story of his own life--about his boyhood in a Polish...shtetl, and how he ran away from home, came to America, met his future wife, married, and raised a family. Then he relates a children's story...about a boy named David, whose beloved grandfather dies and whose parents disappear. Transported by a magic bird secretly sent by his grandfather, David sets out to find his parents."
