Reviews

"In this splendidly illustrated, humorous tale, Hershel outwits, one by one, eight fearsome goblins who not only haunt an old synagogue, but also have been forestalling Hanukkah in a nearby village . . . Rarely are author and illustrator so in tune."--Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review

"Hyman is at her best with windswept landscapes, dark interiors, close portraiture, and imaginatively wicked creatures. Both art and history are charged with energy."--The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books "This is a story whose essentials--cleverness, bravery, and otherworldly happenings-- always attract readers."--Booklist "This original story in the tradition of Yiddish tales about Hershel Ostropolier is welcome as a Hanukkah story and as a trickster tale. . . . Hyman's illustrations capture Hershel's humor and earthy, peasant quality."--The Horn Book "Caldecott Medalist Trina Schart Hyman provides wonderfully creepy art for Eric Kimmel's Hershel and the Hanukkah Goblins, a triumphant tale of goblins outwitted and faith preserved."--Publishers Weekly
