Lazy Shlemazel is convinced he has no luck. But Moshke the tinker promises him that his luck will change if he sets to work using the "amazing, remarkable spoon of Pohost." Shlemazel gets busy--tilling the poretz"s field, helping the miller, and baking cakes with pretty Chaya Massel. Although "luck" remains elusive, what Shlemazel does find is even better.

Lively Chagall-like illustrations capture the spirit of this traditional Jewish tale, a funny and thought-provoking look at how we make our own luck. Author"s note, glossary.
