I received a complimentary copy from the publisher and all opinions expressed are entirely my own.

The book follows two animals, a turtle and a penguin who sneak into a house during Passover. They are tempted by the smell of gefilte fish and end up stealing some. The following morning they feel guilty and take back the meal and ask for forgiveness. Such an entertaining book.

Would you purchase this book for yourself or a friend? Yes

This book tells the story of two animals, a turtle and a penguin who sneak into a house in New Zealand during passover. They stumble upon the delicious smelling gefilte fish being served for the holiday, and can’t help but steal some! Later they feel guilty and apologize for stealing the fish, and are invited to enjoy passover with the family they stole from. The story ends with some information about Ashkenazi Jews and the traditions related to Passover as well as a recipe for Gefilte Fish.

This is a great story for teaching about diverse celebrations from the perspective of some fun animals. I think this book would be perfect for families and teachers of children in the age 5-10 range. The pages are usually text on one side and pictures on the other. The pictures are detailed and interesting. There is a fair amount of text per page so I would recommend it for mainly shared reading or read alouds with younger children but I think that older children who are able to read independently would enjoy the story as well. Thanks so much to Netgalley and the publisher for giving me the opportunity to read and review this book!
