for Purim Play by Roni Schotter and Marylin Hafner
Every year, when people are winter-weary and longing for spring, Purim comes and it's time for play -- time for the annual Purim play, that is! Frannie's two cousins always come to Frannie's house to celebrate Purim and reenact the story of how brave Queen Esther saved the Jewish people. But this year, the cousins are sick with the flu, and Frannie's mom, without asking Frannie, has invited old Mrs. Teplitzky from down the street to play the role of the evil Haman. Can this topsy-turvy Purim play go on? This warm and gently humorous story captures all the fun, festivity, and friendship of one of kids' favorite Jewish holiday.
