Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Eight stories, some of them based on traditional Jewish tales, by one of the greatest storytellers of our time. The length, the style, and the humor make them a happy source for storytelling; individual readers will have the added pleasure of the Zemach illustrations, distinctive in their own right." —Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Eight stories, some inspired by traditional Jewish tales, feature such characters as Shlemiel, Todie, Rabbi Leib and Menaseh. PW called this ``a rich collection that will be enjoyed by both young and old.'' (All ages)
