Summary:The retelling of a Jewish legend, Golem is the story of a clay giant created and brought to life by the rabbis in order to protect the Jewish ghetto dwellers from lies and persecution. Although Golem is faithful in his duties, he is destroyed by his master as soon as the Jews are safe.
Review:Length and foreign vocabulary make this a nice read for older children, especially those who enjoy Frankenstein, and the paper-cut illustrations are exquisite.
