Review:
A return to Egielski's beautifully rounded wooden "tub people." Evoking the bittersweet mood of Hans Christian Andersen's tales of lost toys, Conrad's creatures face the hazards of their world. This time, Grandfather is rescued from beneath the radiator, and, with poignant dance, what had almost been lost is quietly restored.
