It Could Always Be Worse

Margot Zemach. Scholastic, $2.95 (0pp) ISBN 978-0-590-33989-6

A poor man who lives with his family in a very crowded house complains about his lot, until the rabbi, to whom he has gone for advice, tells him to bring in the farm animals as well, and he realizes how lucky he really is. PW declared, ""Zemach's colorful and lusty paintings are hilariously illustrative of the absurd doings.'' (3-up)
