Maurice Sendak (il); Tony Kushner (au). When Aninku & Pepicek discover one morning that their mother is sick, they rush to town for milk to make her better. Their attempt to earn money by singing is thwarted by a bullying, bellowing hurdy-gurdy grinder, Brundibar, who tyrannizes the town square & chases all other street musicians away. Befriended by 3 intelligent talking animals & 300 helpful schoolkids, brother & sister sing for the money, buy the milk, defeat the bully, & triumphantly return home. This book is based on a Czech opera of the same name (“Brundibar” is Czech slang for “Bumblebee”), with a libretto by Adolf Hoffmeister, set to music by Hans Krasa. Completed in 1938, the opera was performed 55 times by the children of Terezin, the Nazi concentration camp.
