"Children will chuckle as the matzah stands up to the bully challah, but they will learn a bit about Jewish holidays and even more about standing up for themselves and what is important to them. The story is easy for children to relate to and identify with; the art is integral to the story and admirably communicates the message to even the youngest reader." - Jewish Review Council
"Whimsical, humorous, expressive colored illustrations bring the conflict between bully Challah Boy and hero Matza Boy in this exciting duel to determine if a kosher Passover will be allowed to be celebrated by the faithful. "Challah vs Matza" is an excellent children's story that dramatizes important values highlighted in the Passover tradition and story. Highlighting religious freedom, and protection of the right to celebrate one's faith according to one's faith requirements are core values that reflect the highest human endeavors." - Midwest Book Review
"Melissa Berg's Challah vs. Matza teaches children about the traditions and customs of Passover, while all the while being silly and enjoyable. With a sly combination of absurdity and drama, the story is well paced and engaging. It's like the Karate Kid being told with wise-cracking anthropomorphic baked goods. Once the action begins--a winner take all battle between the "boys"--Berg's writing, and illustrator Shiela Alejandro's paintings, work incredibly well together. There is enough wit and humor to keep a classic underdog vs. bully story feeling fresh and fun. Kids and parents will love it!" - Dave Horowitz (author of "Five Little Gefiltes," "The Ugly Pumpkin," and "Scholastic: Little Big Horse."
