Price: $15.18

Quantity: 1 available

Grandmother's stories are inspired by simple things in her apartment - a button box, an embroidered shawl, a freshly baked strudel - the ten stories she tells her granddaughter are rooted in Grandmother's Russian Jewish heritage. They are all fascinating and range from ancient Jerusalem to the Russian countryside, and all the way to the mythical village of Chelm, where the Chief Sage keeps his shoes from getting muddy by wearing them - where else? - on his hands. There is a story about a rabbi, one about a ghost bride, even a story about a kvetch who meets an angel. Each is instructive, each is sheer delight. The binding has a bit of wear at the front bottom corner, and there is a tear on the jacket spine bottom, about 1/4". ; 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall
