We gave it an A-

Jenny Allen pens three short stories about serendipity and the triumph of the yuppie spirit in The Long Chalkboard, with hubby Jules Feiffer’s simple black-and-white drawings perfectly capturing her whimsical characters.

For Fans of…
Fairy tales, New Yorker cartoons, and anyone too embarrassed to be seen carrying a copy of Chicken Soup for the Soul.

Does It Deliver?
Yes. Unless you’re cranky, in which case all the goodness might be a bit much.
