Note: 
Reuven is put up to spying on the rabbi by his friends in this picture book retelling of “If Not Higher” by I. L. Peretz. They want to know if the rabbi really goes to heaven to plead for the village of Nemirov on the day before Rosh Hashanah as people say. Having witnessed the rabbi's acts of kindness towards someone in dire need, Reuven answers, "Even higher." Full color illustrations fill the pages with an autumn palette of blazing reds and blues, adding charming details, such as a cat curled into curves on top of the sleeping rabbi.
