Back cover copy

Koppel plunked the meat grinder down on the table. "Tell her what you told me," he said. Yetta rolled her eyes. "Oy vey, he's talking to a meat grinder." "Tell her!" shouted Koppel. The meat grinder was silent. "Does it know any chicken jokes?" Yetta giggled. "It sings 'My Yiddishe Mama' maybe?" Yetta laughed so hard she popped three buttons. But Koppel didn't notice. He had a faraway look in his eyes. In this fresh take on a classic tale, a magic meat grinder helps a poor Jewish couple learn a little gratitude after the three wishes it grants them go awry. A cautionary story that questions today's consumerism and excess, Kishka for Koppel, like the best folktales, can help children and adults alike to look both beyond and within.

Review quote

"A heartwarming tale of magic and unbelievable events in the lives of a poor husband and wife, Koppel and Yetta...Aubrey Davis has written a clever, playful story for young children loaded with wondrous surprises, happiness, a bit of heartbreak, a lot of kishka and a great deal of special meaning. Sheldon Cohen's illustrations are full-bodied, richly coloured and add extra nuance to Davis' words. Young readers will be delighted with the story."--The Canadian Jewish News
