A typical Elijah story---a kind but poor woman shares her last, small potato with a beggar who appears at her door immediately after she asks for a miracle on the first night of Hanukkah. On each of the following nights of the holiday, she finds X potatoes for the Xth night. The idea of mixing an Elijah story with the Hanukkah concepts of a miracle of stuff increasing when it should decrease and eating latkes is clever. I just wish the whole had been greater than the sum of its parts: It's a nice enough story, teaches valuable lessons about sharing and kindness and friendship and faith and shtetl life and women as everyday heroes and how to make latkes, but it left me hungry for something more. The pictures are detailed and colorful, but seem gray, perhaps because the paper is not bright white.
