Description


You've met the latkes, you've met the matzah...now it's time to meet the hamantaschen in this zany Purim story!

There's a problem with Purim!

The Purim play is about to start, but the megillah is missing! Without the scroll that recounts the Purim story, how can the show go on? Never fear: three determined hamantaschen—

DETECTIVES!

Right. Three determined DETECTIVES are on the case. With the help of a mysterious stranger and a few disguises, the detectives uncover the facts so the true story of Purim can be told.

In this companion to Meet the Latkes and Meet the Matzah, holiday mistellings have never been so fun.
