A very interactive and scary book about Hanukkah for primary and k-2 readers. I personally loved this book when I was a kid and it introduced me to the holiday Hanukkah. This book gives the representation of a holiday that not many people would know who don't celebrate Hanukkah. ( )

The illustrator creates a gloomy dark landscape using dark wintery colors. While the mood is somber at first, once the goblins are introduces a humorous tone lightens the mood due to the caricature-ish nature of the goblins. It is an interesting story, with author's notes at the end explaining the history behind the story and what the prominent Jewish items are. I think it is a cute story with interesting insight into Jewish folklore/fairy tales. ( )

Includes back matter with information on holiday customs, i.e. how to play dreidel.

"Hershel and the Hanukkah Goblins" was awarded a Caldecott Honor in 1990. The story follows a Jewish man named Hershel of Ostropol traveling to a town on the first night of Hanukkah, only to discover that none of the homes in the town have their menorahs lit. The villagers tell Hershel that goblins have been haunting the old synagogue in town for years, and that the goblins always prevent them from celebrating Hanukkah. Hershel goes to the town's synagogue, where the goblins live, and stays there for eight nights to defeat the goblins. He defeats the goblins by using his wits; he convinces one goblin that he is incredibly strong by crushing a hard-boiled egg, which looks like a rock in the dim light of the synagogue. Hershel then gets another goblin's hand stuck in a pickle jar, and the goblin thinks that he was cursed so he runs away. The goblin king is outsmarted by Hershel on the last night of Hanukkah, when Hershel convinces the goblin king to light the candles of the menorah, which was the way to break the goblins curse. At the end of the book, the synagogue disappears when the goblin king is defeated, but the lit menorah still remains. Hershel hurries back to the village so he doesn't miss the last night of Hanukkah, and the lit menorahs in every villager's window helps him find the way back. The illustrations of the book are traditional penciled drawings with painted colors and backgrounds. In the beginning of the book, the illustrations manage to convey hard journey Hershel has made to the village, as well as the cold, merciless winter. The first image of the village is dark and depressing, showing the reader how the lack of Hanukkah celebration has dampened the villagers' spirits. The designs of the goblins are also very effective; the first few goblins start out as very goofy, playful looking monsters, which makes sense since Hershel is easily able to outsmart them. The other goblins, however, are large, intimidating, and evil looking, with the goblin king being the scariest of all the goblins. He towers over Hershel, and all pages featuring the goblin king show Hershel looking up at the king in fear or awe. When the synagogue is swept away when the goblin king is defeated, the chaos is shown on the page as the king's spirit takes on the shape of a tornado, with the rubble of the synagogue flying around wildly. The last page of the book reflects the first page, with Hershel standing in a snowy hill above the village; this time, however, the windy snow is no longer present and the village below is lit, showing Hershel's victory over the goblins. I thought this book was a great story, and even though it's geared towards younger children, I think it would be a great read for all ages. Through reading this book I learned a few new things about the celebration of Hanukkah, plus I really enjoyed the wonderfully crafted illustrations. ( )
