Jewish legend holds that 400 years ago the revered Rabbi Loew brought to life a giant man of clay - a golem - whose task was to vanguish those who persecuted the Jews of Prague. Retold from traditional sources and accompanied by cut-paper illustrations, Golem examines the consequences of unleashing power beyond human control. Winner of the 1997 Caldecott Medal Award;  pages.
