Think of this as pretty tasty schmear.--Publishers Weekly Silly, but all in good fun.--School Library Journal The illustrations are full of humor . . .Nostalgic looks back at the lively culture of immigrant Jews are worthy of applause.--Kirkus Reviews You do not have to be Jewish to enjoy reading the tale of the five little gefiltes . . . The jolly nonsense is visualized with cut paper, charcoal, and colored pencils on double-page spreads. Very simple city settings include background silhouettes of buildings and, frequently, storefronts with funny signs. Speech balloons give a few characters a chance to express feelings such as What a shnook or Such chutzpah. The family is depicted as simple ovals with a few lines that still manage to communicate their feelings quite clearly. As the guys note on the jacket, Such a nice book.--Children's Literature
