Summary "Who can stop the Golem from destroying the world? The legend of the Golem dates back to the 1500s when the Jews of Prague were being viciously persecuted. Their spiritual leader, rabbi loew, also known as The Maharal of Prague, created a formidable creature out of clay whose mission it was to protect the Jews of the city. This stunning picture book with its lyrical text and evocative illustrations retells the story of the Golem through the eyes of a young boy, Frantz. Despite warnings to never enter the attic in the synagogue, Frantz can't resist its allure. There, he is transported back to the time when the Golem was created, and eventually destroyed. A blend of mysticism, the supernatural, and even romance makes this a haunting picture book for older children. Notes at the end of the book provide explanations of references that readers may not be familiar with."-- Provided by publisher.
