Sinopsis: Named a 2003 Notable Book for Young Readers by The Association of Jewish Libraries
Spring has come to the little town of Chelm and everyone is busy making things clean and fresh for Passover. At Rachel?s home, a special gift has arrived: Bubbie from Bialystok has sent along her recipe for Bubbie?s Own Matzo Ball Soup. Rachel?s mother is thrilled. Maybe the fragrance of the soup will lure Elijah the Prophet to their home and he will bestow good fortune on them.
The soup is indeed wonderful, and soon it draws the neighbors. But none of these everyday folk could possibly be the great prophet. Or could they? As in Rachel Captures the Moon, the solution lies in the hands of a loving child.
??the ?lesson? is accompanied by lively action and smooth prose. The rich watercolor and colored-pencil illustrations in the style of folk art capture the European village setting, and the reds, yellows, and oranges add to the warmth of the tale? A welcome addition to Jewish folklore shelves.?
? School Library Journal
?With watercolored pencil on paper, Ungar creates Chagall-like illustrations that virtually vibrate with color. He uses them to great effect, drawing us into a magical place at a magical time, and then weaving his magical tale? This is a wonderful book to bring to your Seder table this year?to give as a gift?or just to keep on your own bookshelf for the delight of a well-told tale.?
? JBooks.com, The Online Jewish Book Community
??[a] wholesome tale [that] promotes caring and sharing with light-hearted humour and a rich, intense palette of bright, warm colours? [A]dults and younger kids alike will enjoy looking at Ungar?s whimsical, lively watercolour and coloured pencil illustrations.?
