The Passover Mouse


Frances Gilbert at Doubleday has acquired world rights to The Passover Mouse by Joy Nelkin Wieder, illustrated by Shahar Kober.


In the holiday-themed picture book about community and sharing, a little mouse upsets a village preparing for Passover when it steals a morsel of unleavened bread—or chometz—right after all the houses have been swept clean in accordance with Talmudic law, inspiring the neighbors to come together to help get ready.

Publication is slated for Spring 2020.

Barbara Krasner at Olswanger Literary represented the author and Justin Rucker at Shannon Associates represented the illustrator.
