Hashem sends us messages every day, through simple and complex occurrences, but do we understand the messages properly? In this charming book, author-illustrator Gadi Pollack brings twelve of the Dubno Maggid's powerful parables to life. With skill, wisdom, and wit, he portrays the parables, using characters we all can relate to, to bring home a profound message for all of us to understand. Meet Fishel the beggar, Reb Zalman, the wealthy philanthropist, and Robert the Rogue, among others, whose simple tales transport us to a different era, and an elevated frame of mind. Each story is followed by a concise explanation of the message behind the parable which gives eminent food for thought. This beautifully crafted book makes a great gift for both young and old, and will bring pleasure--and enlightenment--to all who read it.
