Note: 
A time travel fantasy that takes a modern Canadian boy back to the shtetl where his ancestors lived. Jesse becomes his great-great grandfather, Yossi, who outwits a garrison of Russian soldiers despite his clumsiness. The historical setting is well-realized and the characterization is believable. Readers enjoy an appealing central figure as they absorb daily Jewish life in a by-gone era.
