KIRKUS REVIEW

After Daniel persuades his family to celebrate the New Year with a birthday cake for the world, they decide to hold their celebration outdoors--where the wind blows out all the candles, confirming Daniel's belief that the Creation is an idea that is still very much alive. An unusual, effective way to present Rosh Hashanah; Winter's sturdy, carefully designed paintings set the story in an urban neighborhood a couple of generations ago.
