Description

"Throw it out!" Cries Joseph's mother. So Joseph runs to his grandfather with his favourite blanket. Grandpa can fix anything. From the tattered blanket, Grandpa makes a handsome jacket. With a few passes of his needle, a vest becomes a Sabbath tie. And snip! Snip! A ragged handkerchief turns into a brand-new button. But when the button is lost, what's to be done? Even Grandpa can't make something from nothing!

Phoebe Gilman's loving portrait of shekel life will endear Joseph and his family to readers young and old.
