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
