Editorial Review


Cover: Izzy the Whiz and Passover McClean

“If you got rid of your sister and the fish in the pot, gave your mom a migraine, and invited the Cat in the Hat to clean up the house for Passover, you just might get this book. When Izzy the Whiz is admonished by his stressed-out mother for a bedroom crammed with Passover contraband ‘hametz’ (anything made with leavened flour) right before the holidays, this bespectacled boy-inventor creates a machine that scrubs the whole house clean leaving ‘Not a flake! Not a cake! Not a cookie or crumb!’ Not without mishap, of course. Children will enjoy the topsy-turvy illustrations that show furniture and household bric-a-brac being gobbled, spat up, and put to rights by a multi-armed, fanged contraption on wheels. Although its plotline and audience may be limited, the rhyming text does a good job explaining a tenet of the Torah through a humorous and accessible story.”—Bayviews
