"Hebrew Kid" causes detour :) (it's that good)

I was so engrossed in Robert Avrech's The Hebrew Kid and the Apache Maiden that I went at least a half dozen stops on the subway before I realized I was headed in the wrong direction! I thoroughly enjoyed this book. So did Mark/PT, and I see an excerpt from a positive review by Pearl Saban on the back cover. So nu, go buy, already!

Thanks so very much. Glad you enjoyed my book, but sorry you missed your stop.

Bought and read it last year; it was an excellent read! I know Robert was working on a sequel. Maybe a silver lining to the Hollywood writers strike is that he'll have time to finish?

That would be nice. On the other hand, it would be even nicer if the Hollywood writers strike were not only settled, but actually resulted in the writers getting paid adequately and consistently for the use of their scripts, etc.

It is definitely a good read! When I first got my copy, I would read it aloud to my kids on Shabbos.

My son did not just one, but TWO, book reports about it when he was in grade 4 and when he was in grade 6.

well, I'm a fan too. I obtained my copy in a most unusual way...I won a contest on Robert's site, and then he taught me how to shoot a gun. :)
