Publisher's Summary

Beloved "Town of Chelm" returns in world's first definitive encyclopedia of Chelm stories.

After enjoying decades of acclaim in the pages of the acclaimed weekly newspaper The Jewish Press, the lovable, side-splitting tales from the legendary town of Chelm have been collected in the world's first encyclopedia of Chelm stories. This new treasury of Jewish wit and whimsy brims with more than 150 stories straight out of the fabled town of Chelm - the place where solving life's practical problems was never a straightforward affair, but rather a rollicking journey into the inane. 

The world's first definitive encyclopedia of Chelm stories reacquaints listeners with the unforgettable characters everyone's come to know and love, including "The Wise Sage of Chelm" and fumbling "Shepsil". The simple-minded "Mottel the Tailor" and riotous "Berel the Terrible". In all, original writer and creator Arnold Fine's recipe for simple and clean Jewish humor still delivers, and with so many stories gathered together in one audiobook, The Silly World of Chelm is guaranteed to provide hours of fun and enjoyment for the whole family. 

You'll hear about the "Green-Eyed Monster" and "The Adventures of Kunkle and Munkle". You'll enjoy the hilarious tale of "The Mayor's Shoes" and learn about the formation of the "Worriers of Chelm", plus dozens and dozens of more popular tales. 

"The brilliantly conceived, eccentric scenarios have, for decades, left readers of all ages in stitches with helpless laughter, all the while leaving them scratching their heads in wonderment," explains Zalman Goldstein, author of other children's titles such as The Sultan's Trap and the popular Uncle Yossi's Big Book of Stories series. "Being able to provide good, kosher humor for everyone is a privilege that is difficult to pass up. In this regard, The Silly World of Chelm really delivers!"
