Note: 
Boundlessly exuberant, this collection of Yiddish stories, maxims, and jokes is illustrated in Taback's signature and award-winning style. Visual details abound, even to the endpapers and table of contents. In a short introduction, Taback introduces Yiddish and urges readers to have some chutzpah and try it. As in much of the lore from Eastern Europe, irony is the prevailing tone so children need to have some sense of the disjunction between what is and what should be before they enjoy it. A gem!
