This is a charming story not only of a popular Jewish holiday play but of learning tolerance. In a surprise twist, Haman is played by a woman instead of a man and a little girl must adjust to this change as well as get to know her kooky neighbor. When Mrs. Teplitzky shows what she’s capable of, everyone believes her impersonation of Haman and her acting impresses Frannie and makes the play a hit.

The illustrations are colorful, with vibrant hues, and the faces expressive, ably matching the text. It’s a gentle children’s tale about a serious subject, a morality story both up front and incognito.
