Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "This fourth entry in the Engineer Ari series finds Ari rushing to complete his steam-engine run round trip from Jaffa to Jerusalem before Passover begins. He leaves for the train station with his holiday shopping list, and throughout the day, neighbors and friends present him with holiday gifts: an egg from Miriam, dates and almonds from Moshe, parsley from Shifra, and horseradish from Aaron. In return, Ari purchases special Passover matzah for everyone. He arrives home just in time for the seder, only to fall asleep before the festive meal is served. Set in 1893, Cohen's story provides readers with a glimpse of daily life for Palestinian Jews in the years before the British Mandate. Israeli illustrator Kober's cheerful, cartoon-style artwork reflects the sights and sounds of this bygone era. Appended with a note about the real Jerusalem-to-Jaffa train, this makes a good addition to the holiday shelf, especially for Israeli history buffs.--Weisman, Kay Copyright 2015 Booklist"
