The Latke Who Couldn't Stop Screaming: a christmas story by Lemony Snicket; Illustrated by Lisa Brown
A very funny story for grown-ups in the guise of a children's book - basically an allegory for what it is like to Jewish at Christmas. My favorite line? "I AM NOT A HASH BROWN!"
Not for children under the age of 12. Definitely for teens and adults.
A hilarious story about a woman with failing eyesight who mistakes a bear for the Rabbi come to join her for her famous latkes.
Eric Kimmel has written a good number of Hanukkah books for the picture book set - and this one is my favorite.
