Congrats to author Tzivia MacLeod, 2018 Crystal Kite Winner!

Posted by on 6/1/2018 to Meet a Kar-Ben Author
Given to fifteen books that represent excellence in the field of children’s literature, the Crystal Kites Awards are peer-selected, voted on by SCBWI members from local regions. Jennifer Tzivia MacLeod was recognized by her fellow authors in the Middle East/India/Asia region with the award. Read about the awards here.

This fun, imaginative picture book is all about the shenanigans that a group of monkeys creates for poor Yossi, who has no money to buy the food and flowers his family needs for Shavuot. He tries selling the kippahs his wife sews, but he has no luck—until a mischievous monkey shows up. The monkey's antics attract customers and win Yossi's heart . . . but did Yossi's new friend come to stay? Find out by reading this charming book!
