Laura Krauss Melmed and David Slonim create a wholly original Jewish folktale that celebrates generosity, the rebirth of a soul, and delicious potato latkes. Slonim's marvelous paintings seem candle-lit, with cozy golden oranges and shadowy blues. If we didn't know better, we'd believe this was a classic traditional Hanukkah tale. No matter. Given time, it may turn out to be just that! (Ages 5 to 10) --Emilie Coulter --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

My 4 year old twins loved this book. It's a fun Hanukkah story and it's very entertaining. It's age appropriate and held their interest. It's good for both a boy and a girl.Published 22 months ago by twins mom
Great book! I use it to compare and contrast Latkes, Latkes Good To Eat in my Kindergarten class. My Kindergarteners enjoyed this book.Published 23 months ago by Chaya Phillips
