Gr 1-3-Expressionist artist Dollinger brings her unique view of shtetl life to this tale about a rabbi who is so moved by prayer that he leaves the ground and flies. As Rabbi Frum drifts above the congregation, Reb Finkel, the shoemaker, is ashamed to see holes in the holy man's shoes, and secretly plots to repair them without being noticed. The following Sabbath, the rabbi floats through the service in shiny new footwear. The story is less about the holiness of the rabbi, and more about the holey-ness of his shoes. The gouache illustrations with pen-and-ink accompaniments are lively, but perspective is often lost in the clutter. The lack of a source for the story makes it inappropriate for folklore collections, and it is not strong enough to stand on its own merit. Pass on this offering in favor of collections such as Barbara Diamond Goldin's Journeys with Elijah (Harcourt, 1999) or Eric Kimmel's "Hershel of Ostropol" stories (Holiday).-Martha Link, Louisville Free Public Library, KY
