Kishka for Koppel by Aubrey Davis, Sheldon Cohen

In this fresh take on a classic tale, a magic meat grinder helps a poor Jewish couple learn a little gratitude after the three wishes it grants them go awry. A cautionary story that questions today's consumerism and excessiveness, Kishka for Koppel, like the best folktales, can help children and adults alike to look both beyond and within.

Read an Excerpt

Koppel plunked the meat grinder down on the table.

    "Tell her what you told me," he said.

    Yetta rolled her eyes. "Oy vey, he's talking to a meat grinder."

    "Tell her!" shouted Koppel.

    The meat grinder was silent.

    "Does it know any chicken jokes?" Yetta giggled. "It sings 'My Yiddishe Mama' maybe?"
