Zlateh the Goat and Other Stories (Paperback)
Nobel laureate Isaac Bashevis Singer introduces readers to the village of Chelm in this Newbery Honor Book. Chelm is a village of fools. The most famous fools--the oldest and the greatest--are the seven Elders. But there are lesser fools too: a silly irresponsible bridegroom; four sisters who mix up their feed in bed one night; a young man who imagines himself dead. Here are seven magical folktales spun by a master storyteller, that speak of fools, devils, schlemiels, and even heroes--like Zlateh the goat.
The New York Times called Zlateh the Goat and Other Stories, -beautiful stories for children, written by a master.- The New York Book Review said, -This book is a triumph. If you have no older children on your list, buy it for yourself.- Singer's extraordinary book of folklore is illustrated by Maurice Sendak, who won a Caldecott Medal for Where the Wild Things Are.
