Praise

Praise for FIVE LITTLE GEFILTES

“Think of this as pretty tasty schmear.”–Publishers Weekly

“Silly, but all in good fun.”–School Library Journal

“The illustrations are full of humor . . .Nostalgic looks back at the lively culture of immigrant Jews are worthy of applause.”–Kirkus Reviews

“You do not have to be Jewish to enjoy reading the tale of the five little gefiltes . . . The jolly nonsense is visualized with cut paper, charcoal, and colored pencils on double-page spreads. Very simple city settings include background silhouettes of buildings and, frequently, storefronts with funny signs. Speech balloons give a few characters a chance to express feelings such as “What a shnook” or “Such chutzpah.” The family is depicted as simple ovals with a few lines that still manage to communicate their feelings quite clearly. As the guys note on the jacket, “Such a nice book.””–Children’s Literature
