Monster Bar Mitzvah
Chapter 2: A Mysterious Friend
Chapter 3: A Helping Hand
Chapter 4: Time for a Party!
Eli's big brother's bar mitzvah is coming up and no one has time for Eli, especially not his brother. Eli wants to help, but every time he tries, he just messes up. It's looking like it will be the most boring summer ever. But then, Eli makes a surprising new friend.
There's never been a summer--or a bar mitzvah--like this before!
"Kids will surely relate to this graphic novel and its protagonist Eli, the younger brother of super-successful Adam, who is spending the summer preparing for his upcoming bar mitzvah. Eli’s friends and family members are all busy with their own tasks, leaving Eli feeling neglected. With a little “help” from a mischievous monster named Brisket, Eli spends his time messing up and getting into trouble instead of supporting his family during a very busy time.
After receiving some encouraging words from his family,
Eli and Brisket step up and become true helpers instead of mischief makers.
What’s more, Eli even gives his big brother the confidence he needs to lead
the Torah service at his bar mitzvah.
With bright and engaging illustrations, Monster Bar
Mitzvah is a book that all kids will enjoy — but it’ll be a particular
hit among younger siblings." --Paula Chaiken, Jewish Book Council
