Mrs. Katz and Tush

by Patricia Polacco
Publisher: Dragonfly Books
Softcover book, 32 pages
Current Retail Price: $7.99

Larnel doesn't know his neighbor Mrs. Katz very well until he asks her to adopt an abandoned kitten. Mrs. Katz agrees, on one condition: that Larnel help her take care of the kitten she names Tush. When Larnel starts spending more and more time with Mrs. Katz to help with Tush, Mrs. Katz tells him stories about coming to America from Warsaw, Poland, and about the good times she spent with her late husband. As Larnel grows to love Mrs. Katz, he also learns about the suffering and triumph black history shares with the Jewish heritage. Finally, they celebrate a festive Passover seder together, but their friendship is only just beginning.
