The kids at Camp Knish want to make the ball of clay into a mezuzah, a menorah, a kiddish cup, and more... but the ball of clay will have none of it. He jumps away, rolling through the camp and joining a circle dance, picking up a squash blossom as a sunbonnet, and getting mistaken for a soccer ball. Finally, he lands by a lake and just as the last camper approaches him, he has the last word! Aaron Wolff's sprightly illustrations, rendered with paper, photographs, and colored pencils, capture the character of a ball of clay with attitude in this tale loosely based on The Gingerbread Man.
