The illustrations on this gallery were created for The Barefoot Book of Jewish Tales, written by Shoshana Boyd Gelfand and published by Barefoot Books in 2013.

“Eight popular Jewish stories get a fun new voice in this print and audio retelling…
Mixed-media illustrations by Hall (The Fantastic Jungles of Henri Rousseau) accompany the collection and help bring it to vivid life. Actress Debra Messing provides audio narration on an accompanying CD that might be especially welcome at bedtime. Children and adults of all faiths will enjoy reading these stories and appreciate the universal lifelong lessons within.”
