Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Sammy does not want the part of a matzoh in the Hebrew school play. No class, boring. Why can't he be one of the ten plagues as he wants to be? He likes yucky stuff like plagues! But after a good talk with his mom, he realizes that you couldn't have Passover without matzoh and he figures out a way to make matzoh exciting. Sammy and his friends are all boy-wisecracking, irreverent, a trial to any teacher. Your kids will like them and cheer Sammy for his innovative solution to his miscasting. This reviewer would have liked the book even better if its transliteration from Hebrew into English were more accurate, however. Unleavened bread is generally spelled "chometz" rather than "chumetz," "Matzah" rather than "matzoh." And "Sheket pvakashah" is just plain wrong: The common word for "please" is "bvakashah" with a "b." That being said, this is a cute book with adorable pictures and a bargain , so go ahead and buy it; the kids will love it. 2003, Grosset & Dunlap, Ages 5 to 8.
