"A saying: It pays to have a little chutzpah (nerve)." With old world charm, universal humor, and just a bit of chutzpah, Simms Taback offers this lively spin on thirteen playful tales?as only he could. Paired with his trademark vibrant and hilarious artwork, these stories illustrate ultimate widespread truths and important life lessons, from the difference between a "shlemiel" and a "shlimazel" to the idea that just because you can talk doesn?t mean you make sense. Taback delivers the perfect combination of wisdom and humor?just the way your "zayda" (grandpa) would.
