 Note: This is not a book for young children! 
Characters in this novel do TRY to write and illustrate "kids books", but their experience (direct or indirect) with the mechanized mass murder of the NAZI Holocaust warps such efforts in ways that are not appropriate for early readers.

Music Credit: 

Xicochi, a beautiful Christmas lullaby sung by the Choral ensemble Capella Ducis in Nathuatl, the native language of the Nahuas people, living in Mexico and El Salvador (Mesoamerica region). The song was written by Gaspar Fernandes (1570-1629)
