Schmuel lived in a little gray house
On a little gray street
In a little gray town called Klimovich.
And from the first minute,
The first second he was born,
Everyone told him to hurry up!
And so begins the story of Schmuel, a boy who hurries his whole life through . . . until a magic clock gives him all the time he needs to follow his dreams. This lyrical tale by Jason Robert Brown, whose Broadway shows have garnered rave reviews and numerous awards, is paired with Mary GrandPré's spectacular artwork to create a magical story about taking the time to appreciate the world around you.
