Rabbi Harvey's First Book-Length Adventure and Toughest Challenge
In his colorful career on the Rocky Mountain frontier, Rabbi Harvey has matched wits with a variety of villains most notably the sweet-faced "Bad Bubbe" Bloom, and the self-proclaimed genius Big Milt Wasserman. In this exciting new volume, these two formidable foes team up to try to rid the West of Rabbi Harvey once and for all. The key to their evil scheme: Bad Bubbe s darling son, Rabbi Wisdom Kid Rubin, newly arrived from back East. He s young. He s clever. He s eager to take Harvey s place. But is he fast enough on the draw the wisdom draw, that is to take the town from Rabbi Harvey?
The hilarious, action-packed plot draws on classic Jewish folktales, Talmudic teachings and the timeless wisdom of the wise men of Chelm. As always, Rabbi Harvey protects his town and delivers justice, wielding only the weapons of wisdom, wit and a bit of trickery. He also gets a bit of help from Abigail, the town s quick-thinking school teacher a woman, it appears, who just may have captured his heart."
