KIRKUS REVIEW

 It's time to make latkes for Hanukkah, and Molly is finally old enough to help, to learn her grandma's secret recipe (reprinted at the end), and to hear the story of the miraculous oil. Chwast's large painted woodcuts have an appropriately domestic look, with figures from past and present similarly rendered, thus linking eras. Grandma's facts aren't completely straight--the ancient Jews didn't cultivate potatoes; still, a fine introduction to the celebration and background of this holiday. (Fiction. 6-8)
