Note: 
Based on a poem by Hayyim Nahman Bialik, this is a tale of the foolish son whose father despairs of him, whose brothers scoff at him, but who eventually makes good. The motif is a common one in folk literature and there is nothing here but the characters' name to mark it as Jewish. Nevertheless, Kimmel's fluid, fast-paced style and the vibrant illustrations distinguish it. Arnold's art is all line and movement, with heavily outlined shapes enfolding the bold black type.
