Chaim and Yenta are at their wits’ end - with ten children and a one-room house, they decide it’s high time to get the rabbi’s advice.

"Our house is so crowded, one room’s not enough
For all of our children and all of our stuff…

We’ve no money for building or moving away.
So what should we do, Rabbi, what do you say?"

In this humorous retelling of the well-known tale, the characters and their dilemma come alive through colorful rhymes and animated illustrations. Room for One More is guaranteed to make parents chuckle and children laugh out loud while offering a profound life lesson.

Just make sure to keep your eyes and ears open as you read - if you do, you will surely find one uninvited guest, each child’s favorite hobby, and some clever plays on words - stuff to keep readers of all ages entertained from start to finish.

    A hilarious folk tale, rich in crazy storyline with subtle moral and empathetic characters, returns, tweaked, in modern garb... outstanding rhyming quatrains, brilliant illustrations, a fast pace, and a spelled out moral conclusion...Author Prenzlau does a wonderful job with the plot of this classic; illustrator Katz's mobile art advances the story, showcasing distinctly Orthodox characters... For its fussing and fuming, energy and joy, smells and smiles, this modern revision of a deservedly popular classic is highly recommended for ages 6-10
