K'tonton-the lovable Jewish "Tom Thumb"-has cast a magic spell on children (and their parents and grandparents) for generations, delighting countless readers of all ages with his mischievous escapades. Now he appears again in K'tonton's Sukkot Adventure, a picture book combining two of Sadie Rose Weilerstein's classic tales with light-hearted, whimsical drawings by award-winning illustrator Joe Boddy.
                From the moment of K'tonton's enchanted arrival, he takes readers on a magic-carpet ride into the delightful world of Jewish imagination. Where else could an etrog box be exactly the right size for a bed?

In other words, K'tonton has been much improved [since the original publication], but the main elements of the story and of the holiday remain. The witty, expressive pen-and-ink sketches add to the book's appeal."-Marcia Posner, the Jewish Book Council   - Marcia Posner - Federation of New York and the Jewish Book Council, New York City - 19940101
