Sydney Taylor Honor Book

In the new country, Shirley and her family all have big dreams. Take the family store: Shirley has great ideas about how to make it more modern! Prettier! More profitable! She even thinks she can sell the one specialty no one seems to want to try: Mama's homemade gefilte fish.

But her parents think she's too young to help. And anyway they didn't come to America for their little girl to work. "Go play with the cat!" they urge.

This doesn't stop Shirley's ideas, of course. And one day, when the rest of the family has to rush out leaving her in the store with sleepy Mrs. Gottlieb...Shirley seizes her chance!


"Charming. Paula Cohen tells an all-American tale of the Yiddish diaspora."
--TheWall Street Journal

"Timeless: an indomitable protagonist and the loving family who dotes on her."
--Publishers Weekly

"Beau­ti­ful­ly illus­trat­ed....Shirley is one smart child, a real asset to her striv­ing fam­i­ly. She is full of inno­v­a­tive ideas, which are depict­ed by Cohen with both humor and respect."
--Jewish Book Network

"An affectionate ode to family, fish, and creative problem solving."
