The male-centricity of this book shouldn't surprise me, given the chassidic nature of the stories, but it disappoints me. The author uses the standard tropes of Jewish chassidic folklore, but, in doing so, he implies that women are not and cannot be agents of ethical behavior, only recipients thereof. Doing a re-write of this book with women as the stories' main characters would be interesting, given the cultural implications of each story.

Wow, Shmuel Blitz is just fantastic. I bought this book a couple of years ago but my daughter (age 7) just grew into it. She discovered it on her shelf and read the entire book in one night. She was just smitten with all the stories, she was aglow when she told me about them. Since then, we read about 5 together every night. They are so wonderful! I will go ahead and order all the story collections by this author. Highly recommended.
