Some four hundred years ago, according to legend, Rabbi Loew shaped a giant man of clay--a golem--and brought him to life. The golem's job was to defend the Jews of Prague from their persecutors, and he performed it almost too well. Retold from traditional sources and accompanied by David Wisniewski's unique cut-paper illustrations, Golem is a dramatic tale of supernatural forces invoked to save an oppressed people. Full color.
