Retells a traditional Jewish folktale about a boy named Yankel who likes to spread stories, not realizing the harm caused by his gossip, until the rabbi uses a sack full of feathers to teach him a lesson.

Orca Book Publishers
In this retelling of a Jewish folktale, Yankel does not realize the harm done by the stories he spreads—at least not until the rabbi teaches him an important (albeit gentle) lesson.
Yankel loves to tell stories, as long as they are someone else's. He does not see the hurt that his stories cause, the way they spread and change. Then the rabbi hands him a bag of feathers and tells him to place one on every doorstep in the village. Yankel is changed by what happens and finds himself with his best story yet, one of his very own.
