Clay Man The Golem of Prague by Irene N Watts

This book is illustrated by Kathryn E Shoemaker, and her illustrations really give the story life. It's a retelling of an old tale, and Ms. Watts does an excellent job with it. Sometimes the story line can be a bit dry, but Irene makes her characters vibrant and real.

He's a giant man of clay to save the Jews from persecution, but he has no conscience and no soul...

This is a handsome book and would make a very nice gift. It's published by Tundra Books.

Teach your child about Jewish traditions and folklore. It's a very good read.
