A Golem...a Chilli Champion...a Prince who thinks he's a Rooster? Find them all in this collection of traditional Jewish stories - lovingly treasured, retold and carried through countries as far apart as Poland, Afghanistan, Czechoslovakia, Morocco, Russia and Germany. The tales feature a cast of eccentric princes, sharp-witted scholars, flustered tailors and brave soldiers. Seasoned with wit, humour and magic, Ann Jungman's retellings of stories familiar to Jewish readers are sure to delight a new, wider readership.
ANN JUNGMAN has published over a hundred books for all ages. Most of them are funny stories about monsters lost and confused in a modern setting - she is probably best known for her marvellous series on Vlad the Drac - but recently she has been writing more serious books for older children.
