When the Chickens Went on Strike: A Rosh Hashanah Tale
Erica Silverman (au); Matthew Trueman (il)
One Rosh Hashanah, a boy overhears some chickens planning a strike. They are sick of being used for Kapores, the custom practiced at the start of each New Year, when people twirl a live chicken over their heads, hoping it will erase their bad deeds. The boy needs Kapores to get rid of his bad deeds. When the chickens are found to be missing, the boy tells the villagers where to find them. The women try to coax the chickens back with grain, the men try to get them back with force, and the rabbi tries to negotiate. Finally the boy steps in to make a final plea. Will he get them to listen to reason, or will they have the last word? This amusing story will be enjoyed by anyone who has ever wanted to be a better person. Full-color illustrations. Juvenile audience.
