Note: 
The stories of the Yiddish writer, I. L. Peretz (1859-1915) are said to have captured the soul of Eastern European Jewry. The award winning author, Esther Hautzig, has translated and adapted ten of these treasures for children. Each story is enhanced by Deborah Ray's smoky, evocative illustrations. Among them are Peretz's famous "Bontsche Sweig," "The Magician," "The Seven Good Years," and "If Not Still Higher." JPS has reissued these stories in a paperback edition. They were originally published in 1984. No Jewish child should be deprived of them.
