The Wise Men of Helm & Their Merry Tales by Solomon Simon
The collection of Jewish folk tales that the New York Times called "a delightful little book . . . a classic of its kind . . . full of merriment and wisdom." Illustrated with whimsical drawings, these humorous stories are just right for children.
"Solomon Simon's Wise Men of Helm is a little town 'deep in the forests of Poland,' but suspiciously like Gotham. The wise men, like the Gothamites, are fools of a lovable sort, and their misfortunes are merry."
