Anna Olswanger based her first children's book on a Yiddish newspaper article she uncovered about the attempted robbery of her great-grandfather’s kosher liquor store in St. Louis in 1919. After adding the ghost of Pharaoh, the prophet Elijah, and a talking horse, she was in business. SHLEMIEL CROOKS is a Sydney Taylor Honor Book and PJ Library Book. A family musical based on the book premiered at Merkin Concert Hall in 2011—Art by Paula Goodman Koz. www.shlemielcrooks.com
"In the middle of the night on a Thursday, two crooks—onions should grow in their navels—drove their horse and wagon to the saloon of Reb Elias Olschwanger, at the corner of 14th and Carr streets in St. Louis. This didn't happen yesterday. It was 1919." So begins this wry Pesach story set in the Yiddish community of St. Louis and told with magic realism. Shlemiel Crooks is a Sydney Taylor Honor Book and a PJ Library Book. A family musical based on the book premiered at Merkin Concert Hall.

The war is over, and everyone is saying the South lost. Ten-year-old Jacob would give anything to show those Yankees that not all Confederates are ready to surrender. He gets his chance when he sees a real, live Yankee soldier walking down his street. But before Jacob can think of a way to be brave, the Yankee asks him for a piece of his matzoh.
