Jerome’s fashion-savvy Bubbe is a matchmaker with a problem. “No pot is so crooked that there isn’t a lid to fit it” is her mantra, but she cannot find a match for picky Mr. Sussman, her favorite client. Each week Mr. Sussman has a new request for the type of match he would like: an observant woman who remembers the old country, someone who loves the color blue, someone who likes to bake, an exercise enthusiast, and a dancer. Each week, with his help Jerome’s Bubbe remakes herself as the type of woman Mr. Sussman is looking for but he does not take the hint that she is interested. Fed-up with Mr. Sussman’s obliviousness, she sends him on his way. When he returns he realizes how special Jerome’s Bubbe is and a match is made. A sly wit and exuberant illustrations deliver this story with verve. It is marred, however, by the implication that only by a miracle will fat people find love.
