Synopsis

K'tonton's Sukkot Adventure by Sadie Rose Weilerstein

K'tonton-the lovable Jewish Tom Thumb -has cast a magic spell on children (and their parents and grandparents) for generations, delighting countless readers of all ages with his mischievous escapades. Now he appears again in K'tonton's Sukkot Adventure, a picture book combining two of Sadie Rose Weilerstein's classic tales with light-hearted, whimsical drawings by award-winning illustrator Joe Boddy. From the moment of K'tonton's enchanted arrival, he takes readers on a magic-carpet ride into the delightful world of Jewish imagination. Where else could an etrog box be exactly the right size for a bed? And who else but K'tonton could stow away with his father's etrog in order to join the Sukkot celebration in the synagogue, only to find himself swinging dangerously from the end of a palm frond! Share this marvelous adventure of the enduring little hero and learn about the holiday of Sukkot and its traditions and rituals.

Reviews

Contemporary expressions have been substituted for outdated ones, and the tempo has been picked up. In other words, K'tonton has been much improved [since the original publication], but the main elements of the story and of the holiday remain. The witty, expressive pen-and-ink sketches add to the book's appeal. -Marcia Posner, the Jewish Book Council -- Marcia Posner Federation of New York and the Jewish Book Council, New York City
