PJ at the Pumpkin Theatre

Pumpkin Theatre, PJ Library™, and the Macks Center for Jewish Education collaborated to create, “Quest of the Ziz Bird,” a new play based on the children's book The Hardest Word by Jacqueline Jules.  The Ziz is a giant mythological bird (ours will be a puppet!) that one day accidently destroys the community garden of the children.  A misfit himself, how will the Ziz make things better and find a way to "fit in"?

Performances of Quest of the Ziz Bird were in January and February at The Pumpkin Theater

You may have attended the recent Pumpkin Theatre performance of "Quest of the Ziz Bird" which is based on the PJ Library book "The Hardest Word."  The book and the play star the Ziz who is an ancient creature from Jewish literature.  Have fun playing with other Jewish creatures in the flip book activity here!
