Friday the Rabbi Slept Late

( 3 )

Overview

Rabbi David Small, the new leader of Barnard's Crossing's Jewish community, can't even enjoy his Sabbath without things getting stirred up in a most unorthodox manner: It seems a young nanny has been found strangled, less than a hundred yards from the Temple's parking lot — and all the evidence points to the Rabbi.

Add to that the not-so-quiet rumblings of his disgruntled congregation, and you might say our inimitable hero needs a miracle from...

Overview

Rabbi David Small, the new leader of Barnard's Crossing's Jewish community, can't even enjoy his Sabbath without things getting stirred up in a most unorthodox manner: It seems a young nanny has been found strangled, less than a hundred yards from the Temple's parking lot — and all the evidence points to the Rabbi.

Add to that the not-so-quiet rumblings of his disgruntled congregation, and you might say our inimitable hero needs a miracle from a Higher Source to save him....

Children express different moods, including "I feel very mad," "I feel like reading books all day," and "I feel like wearing funny underwear."

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
This zany title is sure to send listeners into peals of laughter...
From The Critics
This colorful, whimsical picture book is about all kinds of feelings, and the illustrations are simple, appealing, and child-like. The examples of feelings are also child-centered: "Sometimes I feel like celebrating my birthday, even if it is not today." This is a great book to introduce acceptance of feelings for young children. 2000, Little, Brown and Company, $5.95. Ages 3 to 8. Reviewer: S. Latson SOURCE: Parent Council Volume 8
Library Journal
From one detective story to another: this Edgar Award-winning novel was the first in the wonderful Rabbi Small series of murder mysteries. Along with solving the crime, the rabbi offers lessons in Judaism. (LJ 9/1/02) Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-Both of these small, simple, and sometimes very silly books feature brightly colored single-page cartoons of stick-figure-styled animals, people, and faces. In the first title, Parr shows that feelings are always changing. "Sometimes I feel like standing on my head" and "Sometimes I feel like celebrating my birthday even though it's not today" mix with "Sometimes I feel lonely" and "Sometimes I feel cranky." On the last page, the author encourages readers to share their feelings with "-someone you love." Overall, this is a nice addition to titles about the topic. In Underwear, Parr continues his series of books about "Do's and Don'ts." One double-page spread couples "Do Wash your underwear" with "Don't Use too much soap." Another advises, "Do Go shopping for underwear with a hippo" but "Don't Let her try it on," accompanied by an illustration of a hippo in ripped panties, size XL. This zany title is sure to send listeners into peals of laughter during storytime.-Holly Belli, Bergen County Cooperative Library System, West Caldwell, NJ Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.

    OK book not great. Not worth the cost for my Nook.

    I like books by Sue Grafton and Stuart Woods and this was not as high a quality as theirs. It was corny and somewhat predictable but maybe that's the style of this author. I will not read another one in this series.
