Just days before the Purim holiday, Jacob and Sarah respond to an urgent cry for help and find themselves on a remarkable adventure in the muddled and mixed-up land of Purimville, where something has mysteriously gone awry. In a world full of tasty hamantashen, marvelous costumes, and very noisy graggers, the two children must rely on their wits and courage in order to solve the troubles facing Purimville. A humorous fantasy and adventure story accompanied by engaging illustrations, this nontraditional tale will teach children about Purim symbols and lore and the value of believing in their own strengths and abilities.

Editorial Reviews

“Fisman tells a story with sparkling imagination. Together with brightly colored illustrations by Wendy Faust, she creates a fanciful tale that entertains with child-appropriate episodes of danger and drama even as it teaches values of goodness, persistence, and courage.”  —Canadian Jewish News
