An audiobook of absolute hilarity for any parent of any age. Read by Samuel L. Jackson, a perfect pick to read this plead to the child of the story. An ask, no a plead for the little one to sleep, this irreverent and way too honest and on point book is for not just parents, but anyone who enjoys SLJ, humor, or has any experience with kids...they'll get it.

The tables have turned - can the kids persuade their parents to put down the nuggets and eat some vegetables?

Wow! What a timely topic! This was unexpected but absolutely entertaining. I was a bit skeptical at the beginning (Chapter 1) as to where this book was going, but soon I found myself chuckling and enjoying the crazy journey of Len, Miri, and The Golem and being moved morally at the same time.
There is plenty of satirical humor to be had in The Golem of Brooklyn, along with some violence and lots of f-bombs. If this is not your thing, this is not the book for you. The author has a clear moral lesson to tell, but incorporates irreverence to make it entertaining. He did a bang-up job of pointing out the dangers of allowing hate for the "other" to foment and find fertile ground. I found myself reminded of a favorite musical of mine, "The Book of Mormon". I totally recommend this title for anyone who found humor and meaning in this witty but biting show.
Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for the opportunity to read and review The Golem of Brooklyn. Adam Mansbach, kudos and bravo!!

Art teacher Len awakens The Golem almost by accident. Soon we're embroiled in a tale of Hassidic political power and corruption, and a race to stop The Golem from massacring Proud Boys. This meditation on the history of antisemitism and the meaning of Whiteness and Othering is extraordinarily well-written and really quite funny.
