Kirkus Reviews

“An enjoyable treat for the holiday. Don’t pass this one over.”―Kirkus Reviews

Publishers Weekly

“Press’s premise is whimsical, while round-headed, bright-eyed characters from Gulliver appear thoroughly earnest, impressing upon readers how observance and tradition persist no matter the circumstances.”―Publishers Weekly

Sydney Taylor Shmooze

“A pirate crew scrubbing and polishing their ship to get ready for Passover; the pirate captain preparing a seder plate; matzoh balls rolling off the plank into the ocean! What fun this clever Passover story is…It would be a great pre-seder read to share with the little ones who will be sitting at the holiday table.”―Sydney Taylor Shmooze

Good Reads with Ronna

“I adore a jolly good pirate tale and this one’s got rollicking rhyme as well, making for a rewarding Passover read-aloud.”―Good Reads with Ronna


“A fresh take on children’s books about this Jewish holiday.”―BayViews
