Note: 
Modern midrash at its most successful is written by Rabbi Marc Gellman in this book and its sequel. Gellman's interpretations of a selection of stories from the Chumash are both funny and reverent, written with a smattering of modern slang but always true to the meaning of the original. From Adam's naming of the animals to Enoch's discovery of the "announcing tool, " (a shofar), there are stories here to enhance children's appreciation of the Bible. A classic!
