Folklore has been used throughout history to teach and inspire- this new release in paperback will do just that. Inspired by a Jewish folktale, this charming original story begins: Once there was a town called Chelm where there was no luck. If something could go wrong, it did. The roofs of the houses always leaked. The sidewalks were cracked. The gardens grew only weeds. Nothing was ever right. But just wait and find hope with best-selling author Sandy Eisenberg Sasso (nearly 500,000 copies of her books are in print).
Sandy Eisenberg Sasso is the best-selling author of In God’s Name, God’s Paintbrush, Creation’s First Light, and other books. She is a rabbi and director of the Religion, Spirituality and Arts Initiative at Butler University in Indianapolis. Joani Rothenberg is the illustrator of several children’s books. She also lives in Indianapolis.
