The ten stories included in this collection introduce the unique world of one of Israel's most acclaimed and productive children's authors. Zarchi's stories provoke the imagination and expand the boundaries of one's world. Written with the sensitivity and courage of a poet as well as with a great deal of humor, they discuss feelings and situations that most children's stories do not dare to approach. But first and foremost, they are simply a pleasure to read quietly or out loud and will appeal to adults as well as children.
llustrated by Rutu Modan who has received international accolades for her illustrations, this is a gem of a book.
