Product Details

Praise

“With dense, jewel-toned watercolors and colored-pencil illustrations, and characterizations and perspectives reminiscent of Chagall and other Jewish visual folklorists, Ungar swiftly and affectionately transports readers to a mythical, long-ago world.”
Publishers Weekly

“Ungar’s small black and white pictures give appealingly realistic vignettes of characters, while the brilliantly coloured main pictures are exuberant celebrations of village life with a nod to Chagall. His text conveys the relish of the storyteller.”
Quill & Quire

“Richard Ungar has written a book about Chelm that you will really enjoy…Ungar not only wrote the story, but drew the pictures, too. And they are wonderful: full of rich blues, greens, oranges, hot pinks, purples and reds. This is a very funny book, and it is well worth reading.”
Canadian Jewish News

“…[a] marvelous adaptation…it is Unger’s illustrations – watercolour and coloured pencil on paper – that make this book as lustrous and heart-warming as the fullest, brightest moon…They empower every setting and embrace the lead characters, including the moon, in all their eccentric splendour…Rachel Captures the Moon is a not-to-be-missed outstanding contribution to Jewish-content children’s literature by a Canadian author-illustrator and publisher. Rush out and buy it today.”
Ottawa Jewish Bulletin

“The plot of the story celebrates common sense, but the illustrations invoke a nighttime world of imagination, and the combination works beautifully.”
