Hershel and the Hanukkah GoblinsKets never counted on someone as clever as Hershel of Ostropol showing up Using his wits and a few props pickles eggs and a dreidel a suare shaped top with Hebrew letters on each side Hershel manages to outwit all the creepy critters and break the spell This fabulously creative adaptation of the ancient Hanukkah story in which the Syrians forbade the Je. I LOVE this book It is one of my all time favorites It has adventure humor and Jewish feel to it While I understood the necessity I got tired of the typical Chanukah book that basically explained the holiday This one assumes some knowledge of the holiday However there is a summary in the back if you get uestions during story time Besides it has illustrations by my favorite illustrator the late great Trina Schart Hyman And the illustrations make the book A lot of the humor is shown in the pictures such as the first goblin with bat like wings the cover illustration as well as inside the story Although my favorite is probably the goblin with his hand stuck in the pickle jar I read this every year to my kids during the holiday Maybe I'll be able to do so with grandchildren someday

Kimmel – What are the poor villagers to do The holiday hating hill dwelling hobgoblins are bound and detWs to worship as they wanted keeps the spirit of the original while adding a spine tingling twist Warmth and humor prevail even in the midst of hopeless looking circumstances Award winning illustrator Trina Schart Hyman creates lively and witty pictures that pair perfectly with Eric Kimmel's words to create this Caldecott Honor Book Ages to Emilie Coult. “Isn’t tonight the first night of Hanukkah” Hershel asked the villagers “We don’t have Hanukkah Hershel” one of them answered sadly “No Hanukkah How can that be” “It’s because of the goblins They haunt the old synagogue at the top of the hill They hate Hanukkah Whenever we try to light a menorah the goblins blow out the candles They break our dreidels They throw our potato latkes on the floor Those wicked goblins make our lives miserable all year long but on Hanukkah it’s really bad” Hershel and the Hanukkah Goblins is a Caldecott Honor Book This book tells the tale of a man named Hershel and his battle with the goblins that are trying to ruin Hanukkah The illustrations of the people in the book are very realistic and compliment the text nicely There is a drastic contrast between the realistic illustrations of the people in the town of Ostropol and the goblins that are haunting it To me this contrast highlights how dramatic the goblins really feel to the people of the town and how scary they must have felt This book has vocabulary words in Hebrew that are related to Hanukkah such as “gimel” “shin” and “shammes” The book also goes through some of the traditional elements of Hanukkah including lighting the eight candles and using a menorah The book does a nice job integrating traditional religious themes with the silliness of goblins and hauntings I thought the integration of the details felt very natural and easy to understand The last page of the book is a nice expository about the holiday of Hanukkah It talks about the history of the holiday traditional ways to celebrate Hanukkah and food and games associated with Hanukkah I do not celebrate Hanukkah but many children in my school do and I think this would be a fun story to read during the holiday season I do not know if this story was created just for this book or if it derived from a tale long ago but I would be interested to read about the author and the making of this book
