Reviews

US Kirkus Review » Singer and Sendak for all ages - how simple, how perfect! The alchemist of Jewish village life has found the ideal interpretor - the magic is one and indivisible, and the rewards are multiple. These clever, tender, bittersweet tales may be enjoyed for themselves, for their literary mastery, for their reflection of a strong, strange tradition. They may be read silently or aloud, but they are best shared, with ample to examine the subtleties of the etched illustrations. (Many of these tableaux have the fixed intensity of hallucination.) The stories vary in interest, some being no more than vignettes, but the first, Fool's Paradise, and the last, the title story, are masterpieces: the one is magnificent irony and the other is tender, unashamed love. A few are set in Chelm, the town of wise fools, and sometimes it is Hanukkah, but this is incidental. It is also incidental that these are Jewish stories - the pleasure may be quicker but it need not be greater. The consummate skill and transcendent vision are universal. (Kirkus Reviews)
