Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 2-5-Based on a parable told by the great Jewish sage, Rabbi Nachman of Bratslav, this story tells of Avron, a poor village boy in 18th-century Russia, who is taken by the Tsar's messenger to the palace and instructed to cure the prince of acting like a rooster. When Avron notices that the prince/rooster is aping his own actions, the peasant boy quickly realizes how to coax him into behaving like a prince again. The large, simply drawn, full-color marker-rendered illustrations-most of them spread across two pages-are uneven in quality, including several in which the faces and/or bodies of one or both of the boys are amateurishly drawn. The story is most appropriate for Jewish secular or religious-school libraries.-Susan Scheps, Shaker Heights Public Library, OH Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
