The Punchline

What if the monster under the bed was REAL? 

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
