Nine-almost-ten-year-old Thomas Klopper imagines tropical fish swimming in Amsterdam's canals, torrential hailstorms raging in midsummer, and Jesus stopping by every now and again for a chat. Thomas chronicles his daydreams in the "Book of Everything," a secret diary that contains his greatest aspiration: "When I grow up, I'm going to be happy." But happiness eludes Thomas, his sister and his Mama as they struggle with a controlling and sometimes violent Papa. Filled with both humor and hope, The Book of Everything is based on the Dutch novel by Guus Kuijer, set in 1951, and directed by Neil Armfield (Exit the King, The Diary of a Madman). It is a gripping story about finding your own voice, struggling with big ideas, and facing fears.
