about this item
On the morning of the Passover seder, a lonely bubbe decides to make a matzo ball boy to keep her company. Soon delicious smells waft from the bubbling pot, and when she lifts the lid to see if the matzo ball boy is done, out he jumps. Oy! she cries. And where do you think youre going? Im off to see the world, bubbe, he replies. Before long, a yenta and her children, a rabbi, and a fox are all on a mad chase to catch the matzo ball boy!
The classic tale of the "Gingerbread Man" is given a Judaic twist when the matzo ball boy jumps from the hot pot and takes off running with bubbe, her son the rabbi, and the fox hot on the chase to bring him back home in time for their Passover seder. Reprint.
