Schlep, Jane. Schlep.

Schlep, schlep, schlep.

In text that captures the unque rhythms of the original Dick and Jane readers, and in 35 all-new illustrations, a story unfolds in which Dick and Jane--hero and heroine of the classic books for children that generations of Americans have used when learning to read--manage to express shades of feeling and nuances of meaning that ordinary English just can't deliver. How? By speaking Yiddish, employing terms that convey an attitude--part plucky self-assertion, part ironic fatalism. When Dick schmoozes, when Jane kvetches, when their children fress noodles at a Chinese restaurant, the clash of cultures produces genuine hilarity.

Ellis Weiner has been an editor of National Lampoon, a columnist for Spy, and a contributor to many magazines, including The New Yorker and the New York Times Magazine. He lives in Pennsylvania.


Barbara Davilman lives in Los Angeles, where she writes for television.

  • This is hilarious!

    For the Baby boomers, this is a nostalgic gift to give someone. Of course, it helps to know some Yiddish...great gift for a Jewish friend or relative. I was quite amused and bought several for friends and relatives.

    This was a terrible book! I was so looking forward to it, but WHAT a disappointment.

  • Yiddish with Dick and Jane

    I got the book as a present for my mom. The book is great and very funny. It arrived with 3 pages of blurry type, which was a pain, but Overstock made the return and exchange relatively easy, though my mom had to take the book to UPS to send it back. I would have preferred if it could have been picked up from the residence. But still, Overstock was very cooperative with the return and exchange.
