Review:

According to legend, some four centuries or so ago a Rabbi in Prague dreamt that the Lord commanded him to create a creature to protect Jews from those who would do them wrong. The Rabbi fashioned a giant from clay and, with the help of a cabalistic spell, brought the creature to life. The story, of course, served as the basis for Frankenstein. Barbara Rogasky, who has retold other traditional stories in such previous books as Rapunzel and The Water of Life: A Tale from the Brothers Grimm, brings the 400-year-old story back to life with The Golem.

About the Author:

Trina Schart Hyman is the distinguished illustrator of many books for children, including the Caldecott Medal winner "St. George and the Dragon" and the Caldecott Honor books "Little Red Riding Hood" and "Hershel and the Hanukkah Goblins". She collaborated with Barbara Rogasky on the retelling of two Grimm fairy tales, "The Water of Life" and "Rapunzel", an A.L.A. Notable Book. Ms. Hyman lives in Lyme, New Hampshire.

Barbara Rogasky is an award-winning author, editor, and photographer who lives and works out of her 182-year-old home in Thetford Hill, Vermont. With a longstanding interest in Jewish legend and lore, she has been fascinated by golem stories since she was a child. Ms. Rogasky is also the author of the acclaimed "Smoke and Ashes: The Story of the Holocaust", which was named an American Library Association Best of the Best--one of the 100 Best Books for Young Adults published in the last twenty-five years.
