The Adventures of Rabbi Harvey

A graphic novel for readers young and old, The Adventures of Rabbi Harvey, is a lot of fun to read.  The research that author, Steve Sheinkin, did for this book was to read as many Jewish folktales/stories for children as he could find. Then he combined those stories with his childhood love for comics and for the “wild west” and created Rabbi Harvey.

The stories are delightful, and are indeed full of wisdom. And the book will make you smile and laugh. Click here to see a sample of one of the stories.  Click here to read an interview with author, Steve Sheinkin.

I read this book (and am looking forward to reading the sequel, Rabbi Harvey Rides Again) for Callista’s Jewish Literature Challenge 2010, and Chris and Nymeth’s Graphic Novels Challenge 2010. Great fun!
