Reviews

Noodlenuts

A great rhyming read-aloud for a family Chanukah storytime!"—Noodlenuts

AJL Newsletter

“Genuinely clever rhymes, several cuts above the jingles used in so many picture books, tell the story of an extended family’s raucous eight nights of Hanukkah.” —AJL

Jewish Book World

“Elementary-aged children will laugh and giggle at both the text and pictures in this refreshing and hilarious Hanukkah tale.”

Publishers Weekly

“. . .the ties that bind in this rhyming story are more Seinfeldian in nature (‘We await the arrival/ Of eight days of guests/ Friends and family, and pests,/ Who will threaten our very survival’). Of course, it’s all in good fun-what kid wouldn’t want to dine out on stories of relatives like Grandpa Dave, ‘a prank-loving joker,’ who’s guaranteed to ’hide the new dreidel/ ’neath the couch or the cradle.” —Publishers Weekly

School Library Journal

“The amusing rhythmic text carries the action along from one crazy night to the next, supported by a busy cast of characters whose antics are illustrated on crowded spreads rich in color.” —School Library Journal
