Book Review | Someone for Mr. Sussman
by Patricia Polacco

Score: 4

This is Patricia Polaco at her very best – wonderous, brightly colored illustrations combined with delightful, outrageous storytelling. Bubbe the Matchmaker tries to rope in a match for herself and the results are to die for. “No pot is so crooked that there isn’t a lid to fit it!” is Bubbe’s motto, but Mr. Sussman is proving to be the exception to the rule. Her efforts to meet his demands prove futile until she finally gets fed up. The results are good for everyone.

I recommend this book for all Jewish libraries.

Grade Level: 1st-5th
