Description: "Singer and Sendak for all ages how simple, how perfect! The alchemist of Jewish village life has found the ideal interpreter the magic is one and indivisible. These clever, tender, bittersweet tales may be read silently or aloud, but they are best shared, with ample time to examine the subtleties of the etched illustrations." Kirkus Reviews
