The story is such fun; it will always be appreciated as fitting for Purim. Highest praise for the writer/illustrator.
Amalia Hoffman''s art is enchanting and appeals to the child in each of us! Every page is filled with humor that tickles the imagination: fences with features, houses that smile, fowl and animals that participate and add to the richness of the story. Loved the idea of the Rabbi looking into the Holy books for answers to ''problems''; traditional objects and Yiddish names and expressions interspersed make this a truly Jewish story that my own grandmother would have loved as much as I, as a grandmother, do. Can''t wait to share this with my own grandchildren!
Compliments to GEFEN on the quality of the paper and colors both of which make your books so appealing.
