Holiday House Retold by Eric Kimmel Illustrated by Mordicai Gerstein. From Publishers Weekly: Plenty of action enlivens this team's version of a Zen parable about a castle held hostage by a glutinous ra. erstein uses anime-style panel. ut his animals have heft, bulk, and plenty of untidy fur. He has great fun with the paunchy rat who alternately terrorizes the good guy and eats himself silly. Humor, wisdom, and excitement make this offbeat tale a winner.
