The team of Author Jacqueline Jules and Illustrator Katherine Janus Kahn has another success in this fourth story in a series about the Ziz, a gigantic bird-like creature taken from Jewish folklore. BY: Gayle Jacobson-Huset ¿ Managing Editor Stories for Children Magazine King Solomon orders the Ziz to entertain his daughter, Magda. The king keeps her in a tower so she doesn't meet and marry the wrong man. The princess is bored, so the Ziz whisks her away from the tower and takes her on a trip around the world. They rescue a young man falling off a cliff. The man and the princess start to fall in love, and the Ziz gets jealous. He takes the Princess for more trips and just travels in circles so the Princess will never see the young man again. Does the Princess ever figure out what the Ziz is up to? You'll just have to read this fun book to find out. I give this book a high five for a great storyline and terrific illustrations. Ladies, you have another sure-winner here. If you want your kids to have fun and let their imaginations soar, this is the book for them (as are the other stories about the Ziz).
