Overview


As Molly and her grandmother prepare latkes, her grandmother explains the custom of eating latkes and recalls the dramatic story of the tyranny of Antiochus, the faith of Mattathias, the bravery of the Maccabees, and the miracle of the oil. “Touched with watercolor, Chwast’s woodcuts, with their thick, broken lines, reinforce the down-to-earth feeling of the narrative and add richness to a tale of loving generational and religious connection.”-Booklist

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
While preparing the delicious potato latkes, Grandma tells Molly the story of Hanukkah. The woodcuts painted in watercolors give a different and charming look at the family and the traditions associated with the holiday.
