Grover and Big Bird's Passover Celebration is a Sesame Street storybook. It was one of a series from Kar-Ben Publishing of Shalom Sesame cross-overs in which the American Sesame Street characters learn about Jewish holidays, traditions, and culture with their Israeli friends from Rechov Sumsum (in much the same fashion as the Shalom Sesame video series).
Grover and Big Bird want to celebrate Passover at a seder hosted by Brosh (with Avigail and others in attendance), but suffer delays. I'm trying to get there, the two do mitzvot (good deeds), and Grover find parallels in the story of the ancient Jewish slaves. In the end, Moishe Oofnik comes along, and is coaxed into helping them arrive on time. Moishe is given the extra seat reserved for Elijah the Prophet, as per tradition.
Other characters include a boy with a dog named Farfel; while not explained in the book, the dog's name refers to a Jewish pasta.
