Description
 
Children's Literature In this legendary tale of long ago, Joseph lives in Tiberias, Israel by the Sea of Galilee. He honors the Sabbath, as he should, by setting his table with his finest wares and inviting everyone to celebrate with him. His neighbor Judah does not share, and he warns Joseph that he will soon have nothing if he continues his celebrations. Soon, Joseph is poor. Judah dreams that Joseph gets all his money, and is so frightened that he sells all he owns to buy a large ruby. He sews it into his cap and leaves Tiberias for Africa. While he is at sea, a storm blows his cap and the ruby into the ocean. Back in Tiberias, Joseph is still poor. However, he still celebrates the Sabbath and is given a huge fish after helping a fisherman. The ruby is discovered in the fish. His wealth returned, Joseph welcomes Judah back and shares with him. "For truly it is said, what we give to the Sabbath is repaid a thousandfold." The stylized visual story is set in theatrical sequence in double-page scenes; the stolid characters are like sculptures. The unadorned cityscape and clothing and the stark geometry of the buildings combine to produce a sense of quiet appropriate to the story's theme. Reviewer: Ken Marantz and Sylvia Marantz
