Chelm is a village of fools. The most famous fools - the oldest and the greatest - are the seven Elders. But there are lesser fools too: a silly irresponsible bridgegroom; four sisters who mix up their feet in bed one night; a young man who images himself dead. Here are seven magical folktales, spun by a master storyteller, that speaks of fools, devils, shlemiels, and even heroes - like Zlateh the goat.
