Illustrated by Renée Andriani 

Bubbe Judy has brought home a giant jar of gefilte fish—her grandson Jack’s favorite dish—for the family’s Shabbos meal. But something is wrong: the lid is stuck. Oy! Bubbe, Zayde, and Jack schlep the jar all over town, seeking assistance from a dentist, a bodybuilder, an inventor, and other friends. But no one can unscrew that lid. When the family arrives for dinner, they try to help, too. Giggles and groans fill the air as everyone takes a turn. Will that lid ever pop off? Find out in this humorous tale, lightly sprinkled with Yiddish.

 “…a heartwarming tale that’s sure to become a family favorite.”
