Note: 
Adapted from a traditional Elijah tale, this story, set in the Jewish community of Baghdad, is about a mysterious visitor who repays a childless couple's kindness by predicting a surprising future for them, one with a "sticky, stained tablecloth" and "crumbs scattered on the floor." It is beautifully and warmly illustrated in shades of oranges, blues, greens, and reds, with a border on each page. A different version of the story for slightly older children can be found under the title "A Disorderly Table" in Journeys with Elijah by Barbara Diamond Goldin
