“K’tonton existed only on the pages of a book, but I saw him clearly—more clearly—than I saw the teacher.” These are the words of author Francine Klagsbrun in her introduction to The Best of K’tonton, one of the thirty children’s books, primarily of Jewish interest, illustrated by Marilyn Hirsh. Here, Hirsh has illustrated three of little K'tonton's "big adventures"... 1) riding on a chopping knife (narrowly escaping from being made into gefilte fish); 2) spinning on a runaway Hannukah dreidel [top]; 3) reading the Megillah after "masquerading" inside a hamantash [Purim pastry].
