Every Passover Seder ends with a rousing version of Had Gadya, the most loved Passover song. Noted graphic artist Seymour Chwast creates a visual story-within-a-story, in a timeless village where everyone is busy preparing for the holiday. With an Afterword by Rabbi Michael Strassfeld on the history and symbolism of the song, this book enriches the Passover experience for young and old.

Had Gadya told a very unique story, one where the animals all fattened up and then ATE the butcher. It was a bit shocking, but I kind of liked how it was different than I expected it to be. Read full review

Review: Had Gadya: A Passover Song

User Review  - Jim - Goodreads

strange song (but so is the twelve days of Christmas, maybe holidays bring out the weird in writers.). the art by chwast doesn't appeal at all to me. reading in a Jewish book "Gd" spelled "God" is also odd. Read full review
