"Based on an old Yiddish folk song, Taback's spirited...well-paced narration allows time to pour over the dense gouache, watercolor, collage, and pencil-and-ink illustrations. Playful sound effects extend the humor, while the Klezmatics' rousing music reinforces the focus on Jewish culture." School Library Journal
