Product Overview

Nobel laureate Isaac Bashevis Singer introduces readers to the village of Chelm in this Newbery Honor Book. Chelm is a village of fools. The most famous foolsthe oldest and the greatestare the seven Elders. But there are lesser fools too: a silly irresponsible bridegroom; four sisters who mix up their feed in bed one night; a young man who imagines himself dead. Here are seven magical folktales spun by a master storyteller, that speak of fools, devils, schlemiels, and even heroeslike Zlateh the goat.

The New York Times called Zlateh the Goat and Other Stories, beautiful stories for children, written by a master. The New York Book Review said, This book is a triumph. If you have no older children on your list, buy it for yourself. Singer's extraordinary book of folklore is illustrated by Maurice Sendak, who won a Caldecott Medal for Where the Wild Things Are.
