11 year old Henry Cassavant is a good boy. His brother Eddy died a year ago and his father hasn’t spoken much since. Henry and his mother both work hard to make ends meet. She waitresses long hours while Henry works for Mr. Hairston, the grocer. He doesn’t like Mr. Hairston much, who always has something bad to say about everyone but Henry keeps that to himself. When Henry starts following the mysterious old man across the street, Henry finds out just how evil Mr. Hairston can be. The old man is a Jewish Holocaust survivor who spends his days carving his old village from wood. When Henry tells Mr. Hairston about it, he learns just how evil the grocer really is. Mr. Hairston then asks Henry to do the unthinkable in exchange for a stone for his brother’s grave and a raise for him and his mother. In a classic fight of good vs. evil, Henry must decide if he will destroy his friendship and Mr. Levine's hope in exchange for material goods. Middle Level readers on up will find Henry a like-able and endearing character and will not be disappointed by the conclusion. ( )

Not my favorite of Cormier's books. It's got some interesting ideas, but the plot comes together too easily, and even though it's set in (I guess?) the early '50s and the language is trying to capture that, some of the terms the bigoted boss uses are offensive by 1992 standards. I get why they were used, but it just didn't feel true to the time to me. Or something. I dunno. This book just didn't do it for me, though I liked the title an awful lot.
This may be among my least useful reviews. ( )

Om en ond affärsinnehavare som vill få huvudpersonen, pojken Henry, att göra något elakt. ( )

It was okay. I really don't think there was much plot development or character development. I guess it's be good for 3rd and 4th graders? ( )

Henry and his family are dealing with the recent death of his brother and decide to move to a new town. In this new town, Henry meets Mr. Hairston, his new boss at the grocery store, and Mr. Levine, an elderly Holocaust survivor. Mr. Hairston devises an evil plan to test Henry's character.

This story has a universal appeal in that it deals with good versus evil. I was anxious to find out what decision Henry would make. Readers who enjoy stories about people who are faced with making ethical decisions with huge risks will like this one.

Human language is like a cracked kettle on which we beat out tunes for bears to dance to, when all the time we are longing to move the stars to pity.

The old man came out of the crazy house every morning shortly before eight oʼclock and walked down the graveled path to the gate, carrying a small leather bag that swung like a pendulum from his right hand.
