Born into a mob-linked Jewish family in Brighton Beach, Herbie is determined to become an artist. "If you care about comics, or if you don’t care about comics, but you care about human beings, you should read this book."—Seth Tobocman
In 1976, Herbie showed up at nephew Timmy's bar mitzvah wearing shorts! He also brought his tape recorder and interviewed the Perr Family. The result was "Timmy's Bar Mitzvah" tape, the perfect companion to Hands Up, Herbie!
