What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

Many years ago in Poland, there lived a rabbi who had a wife and three daughters. One day, the rabbi asks his children a powerful question: “How much do you love me?” His older daughters profess their love in gold and diamonds, but his youngest daughter, Mireleh, declares she loves her father the way meat loves salt. For this remark, she is banished from her father’s home. In this flavorful Jewish Cinderella tale, Mireleh’s courageous journey is peppered with a perfect blend of magic and romance, leading to a reconciliation with her beloved father. Lavishly illustrated in Louise August’s bold linocuts, The Way Meat Loves Salt will make a wonderful gift for the Jewish holidays.
