The Judge: An Untrue Tale

By Harve Zemach, Margot Zemach (Illustrator)

Prisoner after prisoner excitedly tells the Judge about the horrible thing that is on its way. The no-nonsense Judge throws them all in jail. When the horrible thing comes, poetic justice is done. Illustrated in watercolors and line drawings, the robust, pinkish characters tell their cumulative rhyming tale.
