The House Of Sixty Fathers : The scene is China during the Japanese occupation. Young Tien Pao is alone on his family's sampan when the boat breaks loose from its moorings and is caught by the rushing waters of the river. When the sampan finally lands, Tien Pao is in Japanese territory. With only his pig for company, he starts on the long and difficult journey back to Hengyang and his parents. The House of Sixty Fathers could be the story of any child in any war. In his expressive pictures Maurice Sendak has caught the essence of Tien Pao and his faith, courage, and unwillingness to surrender his belief in the impossible.
