Every year Jewish families commemorate the ancient exodus from Egypt with a ritual Passover meal, or seder. It's an important religious event, but for children it can be, well, kind of a snooze. This one-of-a-kind haggadah will change that. Filled with zany characters, wacky rhymes, and humorous color illustrations, Eliezer Segal's lighthearted and very entertaining look at Passover traditions shows just how much fun a seder can be.

From Chapter 1, A Present from Uncle Eli:
He lit up his smile and began to reply: "I'm your old friend, Uncle Eli am I! And I, Uncle Eli, am just the right one to make sure that this year you will have lots of fun. Instead of just sitting there twiddling your hands while the grown-ups read words that you don't understand, I've brought you a special Haggadah to read. It'll keep you in stitches! It's just what you need! I wrote it for children like you and your friends, who hardly can wait for the seder to end.
It's just the right thing for a silly young boy- a Haggadah you'll learn to adore and enjoy."
Then, waving his finger and wiggling his ears, he stuck his right hand in his tangled white beard and from somewhere down deep in that jungle of hair he pulled out a book, which he held in the air. It's the same fun Haggadah you're reading today. Don't let your folks see it! They'll take it away. You might want to hide it where no one can see, under the table, on top of your knee. It'll be our own secret. They won't understand why you cover your mouth with the back of your hand to stifle the laughs that burst out all the time. -It's your own special secret, and Eli's ...and mine!
