Description:
Although the 46 tales in this collection are as varied as the countries or regions from which they come Poland, central Asia, and Morocco, for example nearly all of them are stories which have been carried and passed on by immigrants to America. Hence, in some ways this collection is a world tour between two covers but not at the expense of the unifying element common to these stories: their uniquely Jewish flavor, "an emphasis on doing the right thing, on surviving by cleverness and kindness and on the need for keeping a good sense of humor.

Entertaining and illuminating story notes give additional information on the origins and different versions of the tales as well as on the characters and creatures which populate them. Sherman's collection includes magical tales; stories about clever folks; tales of ghosts, gilguls, and other strange things; fables that deal with doing the right thing; and stories about the delightfully silly Wise Men of Chelm.
Black-and-white line drawings throughout.
