British seder is versified for Americans

“Crumbs from my Seder Plate” by award-winning author Laurence Phillips is popular at family and communal seders in Britain. It is now available for the first time in the United States. The book, as its promotional material makes clear, wants readers to “imagine Pesach through the eyes of A.A. Milne and Edward Lear.” Passover stories and traditions are retold in nursery rhymes and verse in a witty and loving tribute to the classic British children’s authors of the past. Christopher Robin’s Mah Nishtannah, the Four Sons reborn as traditional limericks, and tales of the Ha’penny Haggadah and the Sixpenny Seder are included in this deeply English book, which could be a perfect seder night gift for the Anglophiles at your table.
