Celebrating Jewish holidays has never been sillier than in Chelm, the Village of Fools! While the Chelmites try to solve problems—like outsmarting bees to get Rosh Hashanah honey, and keeping menorah candles lit without enough oil—their foolishness causes even more chaos. Enjoy these tall tales, old and new, one for each of ten holidays throughout the Jewish year.
"[C]ombine[s] the Chelmites' goofy logic with endearing evocations of shtetl life."—Publishers Weekly
"A lot of fun." — School Library Journal Online
