Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0064434265, Paperback)Share the magic of Chanukah
0n the first night of Chanukah, a young boy invites a friend to his family's annual celebration. The boy's friend has never celebrated Chanukah, one of the most meaningful of the Jewish holidays, and his curiosity sparks a spirited retelling of the historic events commemorated by the Festival of Lights."Henry, a Christian boy, is invited to the home of his Jewish friend to participate in the first night of Hanukkah with the family. After the lighting of the candles and the recitation of the prayers, the boys hear the Hanukkah story about the Jews' fight for religious liberty and the miracle of the oil that lasted eight days. "Parker's unusually fluid art alternately evokes the chill of wintry urban streets and endows the past with a suitably mythic dimension. His figures seem light on their feet and full of life. The holiday spirit just radiates." -Publishers Weekly.
