Combining exquisite storytelling and captivating illustrations, Hershel and the Hanukkah Goblins
is a masterpiece.--Jason Chin, Caldecott Medal Winning Illustrator of Watercress
For more than thirty years, this clever story of a folk hero outwitting dreadful goblins has been a staple of family Hanukkah celebrations.
Adapted from a Ukrainian folktale, with an imaginative twist from master storyteller Eric Kimmel and featuring the timeless illustrations of Caldecott Medalist Trina Schart Hyman, Hershel and the Hanukkah Goblins
is a true classic of children's literature.
A haunting tale with a warm heart, Hershel of Ostropol arrives at a village on the first night of Hanukkah but finds the villagers too afraid to light a single candle! Goblins with spindly claws and twisted faces are haunting the synagogue. Hershel vows to break the curse. The clever trickster faces down one goblin after the next, night after night, until he meets the terrifying King of Goblins. It will take all of Hershel's wits to trick the King of Goblins to light the Menorah himself.
Celebrate the holiday and family tradition this season by sharing this elegant gift edition of the treasured classic with beautiful foil detailing and slipcase. Unfold a poster showcasing the evocative artwork, and read the insightful afterword from the 25th Anniversary Edition explaining the book's origins and remembering Trina Schart Hyman.
This classic picture book is a perfect Hanukkah gift and a wonderful read-aloud.
