The Jar of Fools
by Eric A. Kimmel Illustrated by Mordicai Gerstein
The residents of Chelm do not see things the same way that people in other towns and cities do. In Chelm, latkes can be created from nothing using a magic spoon, hay forks can be menorahs, and dreidels do not have any letters on their sides. But are the residents truly foolish, or perhaps wiser than all the rest?
