"The town of Chelm is just like every place else, only worse, as numerous shortages, foolish citizens, and inept leaders combine to make life thoroughly miserable. In this whimsical satire, Singer mocks the 'advantages'-such as war, crime, and revolution-that civilization brings to Chelm."-Booklist

It is an amazing book with very funny characters. They go through crazy struggles that are ultimately very foolish and stupid. It makes me laugh every time. Highly recommend if you love a good laugh.
