Praise

“Ten superbly retold Jewish folktales… ideal for reading aloud.” —School Library Journal
 
 “10 funny Yiddish folktales about the Jewish trickster Hershel are rooted in the shtetl village community of the nineteenth-century Ukraine. Kimmel says that Hershel was a real character, a wandering beggar, who endeared himself to the common folk by making the pompous and arrogant look foolish….As in the Caldecott Honor Book, Hershel and the Hanukkah Goblins, Trina Schart Hyman’s wild, beautifully detailed drawings capture Hershel’s farcical interchange with the village creatures and characters.” —Booklist  

“Kimmel…makes each of Hershel’s escapades an ingenious delight”  —Kirkus Reviews
