This book was pretty good. It was funny!
Chelm for the Holidays is a collection of short stories that take place in the village of Chelm. Some people say that when the angel distributing souls, he dropped a bag of foolish souls in Chelm!
These stories go through the different Jewish festivals but with a silly Chelm twist. For example, they completely run out oil on the eighth day of Chanukah so they try digging for oil, or taking oil from the street lamps, but it's not enough. Until finally they get some oily latkes and put them in the town menorah and light the latkes!
I think the book was funny but also short, so it may be better for a younger reader.
