Ziggy loves coming up with new inventions. Unfortunately, though, most of his inventions just don't work out, like the square Ziggyball or the shulstilts he makes for Rabbi Levi.

Ziggy s father sells buns for Moishe the Baker, but Mrs. Schwartz always complains that the buns are undercooked at the center. That's when Ziggy puts his creative mind to work, with his idea for making the baker's buns tastier and easier to carry, leading to the creation of one of the world's favorite treats the bagel! Bagel recipe included.

  • "The story s dialogue-driven, child-oriented approach makes a nifty starting point for this 'origin tale' of a much-loved breakfast food." -- Kirkus Reviews
    "It's solid storytelling, and Joni's earth-toned drawings are a pleasing mix of flattened perspectives, dimensionality, and texture." -- Publisher's Weekly
