I liked this book.

It was very interesting to read a book that was about the history of Jewish holiday but in modern language. If you like graphic novels than I would recommend this book to TRY.

This book is cool to read, and hard to put down.

This book made me think more about the importance of family.

I liked this book a lot. the only reason that I didn't give it 5 stars is because there are some boring parts when they test your knowledge. I think that they should have them only one page. the story should also be longer. I really liked this book!

I read this book so many times and it's funny every single time I do. I like how in with the facts there are some jokes too like the king using modern phrases when he talked and at the end of each chapter there is a review on the topics that chapter went over. Its a graphic novel but it takes longer than you would expect a graphic novel would.

This was a great book!

What happened during the Purim story wasn't actually fun but they wrote it in a way that was fun to read and humorous. It made you want to read it and I liked that it was a comic. I also liked the quizzes so you can remember all the things in the story.

Finally a book that doesn't pretend Vashti was a heroine
Submitted 2/8/2019 by Bookboy1

I would read more books by this author.

Most people think that Vashti stood up for women's rights but she didn't at all. She made Jewish girls scrub her floors without clothes on Shabbos when it is their day of rest. She was ready to go to Achashveirosh but because she got a skin defect decided not to go. The true heroine of the story is Queen Esther. She sacrificed her entire life and what it would have been like, to save all of the Jews. She could have been killed, and she also wasn't able to be married to her cousin Mordechai anymore. She kept kosher while in a place where they wanted to kill people like her. She kept Shabbos. She stood up for what she believed in.

Funny!

This book tells the Purim story in a graphic novel format. It has jokes, and questions at the end. I borrowed this from my school library, but my siblings and I like it so much I am ordering a copy of my own this month! One of the other reviews complained that they made Vashti the villain... that's because she is one! Just search Vashti Jewish tradition and you'll see what I mean. This book is a fun version of the Purim story for kids.

Love the humor!

This book taught me so many things! It tells the story of Purim and its adventurous tale! I learned to stand up for others and myself with might in the toughest of situations.

This epic story, told through a comic strip, reminded me that it is OK to always be me and to be kind and respect others!

I highly recommend this book!

Rabbi Moshe Moscovitz
Author of The Queen of Persia

Rabbi Moshe Moscowitz was a teacher for over 20 years and was always looking for different ways to teach his students while having fun. He started his publishing and media company out of his basement in Chicago and has published lots of cartoons and DVDs about Jewish holidays! He flies all over the world to help companies get Kosher certification. In fact, The Queen of Persia was mostly written on planes!
