The original children book was written by Meir Shalev in Hebrew.
If this story makes you smile, the original illustartions by Yossi Abulafia will get your belly exercise its muscles out off heavy laughters. In other words: get yourself the original book.

We wrote this English translation with two goals in our minds. The first, to exercise our Hebrew reading and the second was to let our non-Hebrew speaking friends the opportunity to enjoy this little funny tale. While doing so, we decided to make our own illustartion using TkPaint By Samy Zafrany.

To create the HTML document and images, we used the great Linux operating system, the awesome Emacs editor, and the convert utility from the strong Imagemagik package. We enjoyed the result with Netscape.
