Review Text

The fisherman's family is missing the fisherman, so Jan offers to tend the little ones while mother goes out to earn money. With a penknife found on the beach, he whittles some figures but can't turn up customers until he peddles them to the woman at the local gift shop. "We must have something extra," mother says of his effort, and they all go to the pancake shop for ??pofferties. Guess who's seen through the window? Father, home after engine trouble and a radio breakdown. Intensified paintings overcolor the Dutch seaport and Jan remains cold and distant, his situation unjelled. (Kirkus Reviews)show more
