More information about the book from

"Author David Saltzman wanted The Jester to be there for all children going through challenging times, especially children with cancer. An art and English major, David wrote and illustrated the award-winning Jester as his senior project at Yale while coping with Hodgkin's disease. He graduated with high honors in May 1989, but died not long after his graduation – on March 2, 1990, 11 days before his 23rd birthday.

A whimsical story in rhyme about laughter told through the colorful illustrated adventures of an optimistic Jester and his puppet pal Pharley. The determined duo search for laughter throughout the world after the King unceremoniously banishes them for not being funny one day. They eventually find laughter in an unexpected place – the heart of a little girl in the hospital. They happily return to the glum kingdom bringing color and laughter back with them. The Jester and Pharley reveal where laughter was hiding all the time – inside ourselves.

The original 64-page hardcover full-color book has reached the best-seller lists of the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, USA Today and Publishers Weekly. The self-empowering message of the story - "When you're feeling lonely, or sad, or bad or blue, remember where laughter's hiding…It's hiding inside of YOU!" - is never lost on youngsters."
