" (A) child's enthusiasm and her grandmother's unconditional love and acceptance shine through in this tale of culinary traditions. Whether or not readers are familiar with matzah ball soup, they will connect with this family's loving preparation of traditional foods. Tender, warmhearted, and delightful." --Kirkus Reviews

"(A) tribute to the joys of intergenerational, open-minded home cooking." --Publishers Weekly

This year for Passover, Matilda's grandmother invites her to help make the matzah ball soup

Matilda has always loved watching Bubbe make the soup. Now she wants to try out some of her own ideas. Adding lemon and dill to the matzah balls seems like a great idea. But making one GIANT matzah ball is a giant mistake.

Yet Bubbe is encouraging. "The best part of experimenting is you can always try again," she tells Matilda.

And so the grandmother/granddaughter cooking team continues the kitchen experiments, with some unusual (and unusually delicious ) results.

Includes a recipe for Matilda and Bubbe's Matzah Ball Soup.
