After World War II, sergeant Freddie T. Birch’s ventriloquist act takes a radical turn when he is possessed by the ghost of Avrom Amos, a twelve-year-old Jewish boy killed by the Nazis.

Though Freddie is deeply annoyed by the little invader, he finds that working together his act goes from third rate to top notch.

Unfortunately for Freddie, Avrom has other things in mind besides just making people laugh. He’s on a quest for revenge, and despite the sometimes hilarious havoc it wreaks on Freddie’s personal life, the dybbuk plans to track down his Nazi murderer and bring him to justice.

"Below is a link to Audiofile's lovely "Sound Review" of The Entertainer and the Dybbuk."
    — Audiofile    Read entire review…
"An entertaining and moving story, told with humor and pathos, and characters who embrace life despite unimaginable tragedies. Featuring excellent narration by Banna Rubinow and a full cast, the tale is brought to life with distinct and lively characterizations. The pacing is quick and sharp, the delivery is excellent."
    — School Library Journal January, 2010   Starred Review
"Banna Rubinow, as the story's narrator, speaks with authority and feeling. Alexander Harvey and Joshua Gutmaker are especially worthy of note as The Great Freddie and the dybbuk. Harvey communicates the confusion of a young American flyer who finds himself possessed by an avenging ghost. Gutman ably conveys Avrom's idealistic belief in the justice of retribution."

Praise for the print version of The Entertainer and the Dybbuk:
"Quick, creative, clever and thoroughly entertaining."
Kirkus Best Children’s Books of 2007
    — Kirkus Reviews August, 2007   Starred Review
"Fleischman explores the sensitive topic of anti-Semitism–not just the overt evil of the Nazi system, but also the casual, pervasive bigotry of the period. Even Freddie has to deal with his own deep-seated prejudice. There is a strong emphasis on friendship and justice, and an ultimate affirmation of life and hope. This exciting and thought-provoking book belongs in every collection."
    — School Library Journal August, 2007   Starred Review
