Naftali the Storyteller and His Horse, Sus

by Isaac Bashevis Singer, Margot Zemach (Illustrator)
Hardcover, 129 pages
Not in stock

In his first collection of stories for children since When Shlemiel Went to Warsaw, Isaac Bashevis Singer offers a feast of wit, beauty, and wisdom.

Among the nine stories he tells here are three about Chelm, the city of fools, including one about Lemel and Tzipa, who, though foolish, "possessed more love than all the sages"; "Hanukkah Eve in Warsaw," concerning a boy lost in a snowstorm; the delightfully autobiographical "Growing Up," revealing the young writer-to-be seeing wonders at every turn; and the title story, in which a traveling bookseller and his horse find that they cannot wander forever.

A remarkable collection by a master storyteller.
