The Book of Everything

Adapted by RICHARD TULLOCH from the novel by GUUS KUIJER     

Directed by CHERYL BUTLER   

Thomas is nine and he's started writing a book. His father says all important books are about God. Even so, Thomas writes down all the interesting things he sees that other people seem to ignore: tropical fish in the canal, a deluge of frogs, the Son of God popping in for a chat...He also writes down his greatest determination: When I grow up, I'm going to be happy.Featuring Jesus, the angels, the Bottombiter, the startling Mrs Van Amersfoort and a beautiful girl with a leather leg, this is a totally magical story about a child learning to act when faced with fear and injustice.
