About this show

Nine-almost-ten-year-old Thomas Klopper imagines tropical fish swimming in Amsterdam's canals, torrential hailstorms raging in midsummer, and Jesus stopping by every now and again for a chat. Thomas chronicles his daydreams in the The Book Of Everything, a secret diary that contains his greatest aspiration: "When I grow up, I'm going to be happy." But happiness eludes Thomas, his sister and his Mama as they struggle with a controlling and sometimes violent Papa. Filled with both humor and hope. Appropriate for ages 10 and up.
