I loved this book!

This book taught me more about Jewish holidays, rituals, and even food.

I love the entire Rabbi Harvey series, but this book was just incredible.
It had a single gripping plotline throughout the entire book involving all of the major characters throughout the entire series, rather the individual substories.
I definitely recommend this book.

I love Rabbi Harvey (duh)

This book made me think more about being Jewish.

I only got through about 3/4 of the book because it was switching back and forth from different parts and I couldn't tell what part they were in. It was kind of overall a boring book. I don't suggest reading this book. If someone really likes super-Jewish comic books about Rabbis that are confusing, then this would be a great book for you.

Ever, and like I said, It's the most entertaining book I've ever read.

This book was really cool. I liked how clever the people in this book were, but mostly Rabbi Harvey .If one person tells you you're a mule, ignore them. But if two people tell you you're a mule, go buy yourself a saddle. -The Wisdom Kid.
The only thing was that the book tended to fall apart.

Submitted 3/1/2016 by bookworm_right_here

As always, the Rabbi Harvey adventures are hilarious. I don't know how Steve Sheinkin does it, but he puts an awesome spin on some of the best folktales, and I love it! That being said, I was a little annoyed, when shortly after reading, my brother found the book in three parts. And it wasn't because my other five year old brother wrecked it. The binding isn't the best. This happened to a new book, too! That being said, the book is awesome and I would totally want to read it again.

I loved this book!

I liked how Rabbi Harvey could figure out any situation by tricking people, in a good way, so he could find out the real answer. Like when they thought Rabbi Ruben stole the goblet, Rabbi Harvey came up with an idea to have his hat in the box and have the 3 people that might have stolen the goblet reach into the box to touch the hat. He's so smart!

Steve Sheinkin
Author of Rabbi Harvey Rides Again, Rabbi Harvey vs. The Wisdom Kid, and The Adventures of Rabbi Harvey

"As a kid my favorite books were action stories…sharks eating people, that kind of thing."


Steve Sheinkin is the author of three Rabbi Harvey books. But did you know that he also wrote a book about Abraham Lincoln and another about the atomic bomb? When he was young, Steve liked books about adventure -- it helped if there was buried treasure involved! Here’s a little-known fact: it takes over a year for Steve to write a Rabbi Harvey book because he does all the drawings too!

Steve lives in Saratoga Springs, NY. He likes baseball a lot and has a pretty awesome baseball card collection.
