In a small Jewish town in Poland, at a time when giants still roam the earth yet people are just the same as they are today, there lives a poor tailor. When robbers attack coachmen on the road to his town, he volunteers to drive a merchant’s wagon and soon finds himself embarking upon a series of adventures that will take him far from home. With his keen wit, he solves mysteries, defeats all types of evildoers and becomes known throughout the land as, “The Clever Little Tailor.”
Deeply rooted in Eastern-European Jewish folkways and humor, Solomon Simon’s charming novel for young readers, The Clever Little Tailor, is available for the first time in English. This edition presents the original Yiddish text alongside the English translation and stunning full-color illustrations.
