Description: Hi, I'm Shmutzy Girl. I spend most of my days covered in shmutz (dirt) and leaving trails of shmutz wherever I go. Despite not being the cleanest kid on the block, in my book I learn to love myself shmutz and all.
Written in English, each Matzah Ball book is named for a character with a Yiddish word that describes a central attribute of his or her personality. For example, Shmutzy Girl is always dirty and Kvetchy Boy is always complaining. In each book, the protagonist learns a lesson connected with his or her namesake trait. These fun and lively picture books put the joy and color of Yiddish into a form young people adore - and will make any bubbe or zaide kvell (be proud).
