About the Author

TZIPORAH (TZIPPY) COHEN was born and raised in New York and spent eighteen years in Boston before landing in Canada, where she now lives with her family. Many years after graduating from Harvard Medical School, she received an MFA in Writing for Children and Young Adults from Vermont College of Fine Arts. She now splits her time between writing and working as an oncology/palliative care psychiatrist.

Tzippy's debut middle-grade novel No Vacancy won the Jean Little First-Novel Award and was a Sydney Taylor Award honor and a National Jewish Book Award finalist.

YAARA ESHET was born in Israel and studied at the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design in Jerusalem. Yaara has illustrated over thirty books for children and adults. She has exhibited her art in galleries and museums, in solo and group exhibitions, in Israel and Canada. Yaara lives in Toronto, Ontario, with her family and a variable number of cats.


Even readers unfamiliar with the tale will find themselves drawn in by Eshet's lyrical ink and watercolor drawings.

-- "Publishers Weekly"

Passover magic.

-- "Kirkus"
This wordless Passover time travel adventure is beautifully illustrated in ink and watercolor. ... Eshet vividly depicts both ancient and contemporary settings and practices. ... Afikomen should be a number one pick.-- "CM: Canadian Review of Materials"

A generally lighthearted tale, but one that nods at the more serious history behind the holiday and at the concept of reliving the Jewish enslavement on Passover. STARRED REVIEW

-- "Horn Book"

Children familiar with the story of Passover ... will delight in -decoding the -pictures, looking for hidden clues, and -retelling the tale.

-- "School Library Journal"

Sweet and fun.
