Description


On the first night of Hanukkah, a weary traveler named Hershel of Ostropol eagerly approaches a village, where plenty of latkes and merriment should warm him. But when he arrives not a single candle is lit. A band of frightful goblins has taken over the synagogue, and the villagers cannot celebrate at all Hershel vows to help them. But can one man alone stand up to the goblins, save Hanukkah, and live to tell the tale? The 25th anniversary edition of this Caldecott Honor-winning classic includes an insightful afterword from the author and publisher explaining the book's origins and remembering Trina Schart Hyman, the illustrator who brought the tale to life.
