A Kid for Two Farthings

A Kid for Two Farthings is a 1953 novel by the British writer Wolf Mankowitz, based on the author's experiences of growing up within a Jewish community in London's East End. The title is a reference to the traditional Passover song, Chad Gadya, which begins "One little goat which my father bought for two zuzim". At the very end of the film version, Mr. Kandinsky softly sings fragments of an English translation of this song.
