Dan and the Mudman

Overview


The first day in a new school is always tough, but for Dan it’s been a nightmare. He’s already had a run-in with Steve Fenton, the school’s notorious bully. Steve’s not just a bully, though — he’s an anti-Semite, too. In his last school, it didn’t matter that Dan was Jewish — lots of his classmates were — but here Lucy is his only friend.

Overview


The first day in a new school is always tough, but for Dan it’s been a nightmare. He’s already had a run-in with Steve Fenton, the school’s notorious bully. Steve’s not just a bully, though — he’s an anti-Semite, too. In his last school, it didn’t matter that Dan was Jewish — lots of his classmates were — but here Lucy is his only friend. It looks like it’s going to be a long, long year. Then, in Miss Foxton’s art class, Dan starts to model clay for a class presentation. He doesn’t know what he’s making, really — a dab here, a knob there — then suddenly a form takes shape: he’s made a fierce clay giant. As he gazes in awe at his mysterious creation, he’s suddenly zapped back in time to the 16th century, where he encounters the mystical Golem of Prague. As he helps the Golem right wrongs from the past, little does Dan realize that he’s learning an important lesson in standing up for himself in the present.

Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
Trying to fit in, anti-Semitic bullying and a giant from medieval Jewish lore figure in this British import that tries to do a bit too much. After his family moves north from London, Dan Bernstein has trouble adjusting. His Jewishness arouses the ire of a racist thug, and he's mercilessly harassed. An assignment to make a class presentation results in Dan's being compelled by a mysterious impulse to create a man-shaped form from clay. Astonishingly, the totem gives Dan brief glimpses into 16th-century Prague, where he witnesses the construction of the Golem, a mud behemoth who, legend tells, helped the embattled Jews resist their oppressors. It's not long before the Golem joins Dan and Lucy, his only friend, in this century and teaches him how to stand up for himself-but not before enabling Dan to redress crimes against Jews in the past and having him thwart a very evil man. And then, what a class presentation both friends make! Too bad many readers won't buy into this, as the novel has worthy, though preachy intentions, some excitement and supernatural touches aplenty. (Fantasy. 9-13)
