Shavuot is approaching, but Gitele and Yankl have no money to buy ingredients for blintzes. So they come up with a plan. Every day, they’ll each put a coin into the empty trunk. By Shvuot, they should have enough coins to buy the ingredients.
But will they be able to stick to their plan and provide their family with delicious blintzes for Shavuot?

Jewish Book Council
“Batori’s elongated faces and tilted surroundings capture the zaniness of the action in full color. Goldman seamlessly interweaves definitions for blintzes, dybuks (demons), melamed (teacher), and Shavuot itself without missing a humorous story beat.” — Jewish Book Council
“Goldman’s droll text captures the folkloric style of Chelm tales, while Batori’s colorful illustrations depict the story’s absurdities.” — Booklist Online
