From one of the most thought-provoking writers of young adult fiction comes a bold exploration of hatred, bigotry, and the abuse of power. A masterful portrayal of hatred, prejudice and manipulation that challenges readers to examine how they would behave in the face of evil. Henry meets and befriends Mr. Levine, an elderly Holocaust survivor, who is carving a replica of the village where he lived and which was destroyed in the war. Henry's friendship with Mr. Levine is put to the test when his prejudiced boss, Mr. Hairston, asks Henry to destroy Mr. Levine's village.

"Good, evil and loss of innocence are the themes of this beautifully written story. Henry is a sweet, kind boy who cruelly learns that there's evil in the world and almost everything has its price. Narrator Guidall enhances Cormier's lyrically written story with a wonderful presentation. He portrays the young boy as well as the older people so well that the listener knows exactly who is speaking without being told. A wise purchase for young people; however, all ages can enjoy and benefit from this almost perfect tale. S.G.B. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine"
