Finalist in 2010 Moonbeam Children's Book Award for Juvenile Fiction
Early Children's Chapter Book (ages 6-9)
Matzah balls were never meant for a game of fetch, but try telling that to Mitzvah the Mutt when he is rescued by a Jewish family. Mitzvahís silly antics manage to charm his family and his humorous misinterpretations of the Jewish holidays will leave you laughing and begging for more.
Get ready for a howling good time as you celebrate Shabbat, Hanukkah and Passover with Mitzvah the Mutt.
