"Old World storytelling in a sparkling, novel setting—a delight." ~Kirkus PRAISE FOR HERSHEL and the HANNUKAH GOBLINS
"Hershel successfully uses his wits to oust the eight creatures haunting the old synagogue and who are preventing the villagers from celebrating Hanukkah. Kimmel provides a humorous, entertaining and just slightly scary story for all young readers." ~Children's Literature
