'The Challah Girl' - an old tale told in a refreshingly new way


January 15, 2021

A page from "The Challah Girl."

Fairy tales generally have an "old world" feel to them that sometimes is jarring to our modern sensibilities. And yet, their classic story lines and vivid plotting make them a genre that always appeals. 

"The Challah Girl," a picture book by author Bracha K. Sharp, bridges the gap between out-of-date and timely in a way that is fun and fresh. The bones of the tale, which involves a despondent prince, his anxious parents, and a community-wide quest to cheer him up, feel familiar, but the author's lightly humorous writing and contemporary-minded updates serve to make this story timeless.
