Additional Passover titles (see Spring Holiday Reviews, Feb. 9) include Rebecca's Passover by Ad le Geras, illus. by Sheila Moxley, which showcases the notable author's storytelling skill. Here she describes a seder spent with members of an affectionate extended family. Working in a contemporary style, Moxley takes Geras's work out of the traditional Old World context emphasized in, for example, her collection My Grandmother's Stories; the artist also weaves in sequences that tie the seder and its celebrants to the scenes in Egypt that the seder commemorates.
