The Dybbuk, hearing Yetta's complaints, concocts a
way for her to become her Moms: she sews costumes that look exactly like
Yetta's two Moms. Yetta hops onto her stilts, slips inside a Mom suit
and takes off for her Moms' jobs. Trouble follows.

Yetta & the Fantastic Mom Suits, a picture
book, is a modern version of
a Jewish folktale featuring a mischievous spirit, a Dybbuk. Yetta is
tired of her Moms telling her what to do. She wants to be the boss! She
runs to the back yard on her stilts and spies a Dybbuk sitting high in
the tall pine tree.
