Product Details


PRAISE FOR Yitzi and the Giant Menorah:

“…. a pleasant addition to Hanukkah collections.” —Kirkus Reviews

“Ungar’s… compositions are tightly focused, his signature folkloric style and swirling pastels make for some stunning, if earnest (given the subject matter) images.” Publishers Weekly

“Successfully blending Jewish folklore and distinctive visuals, this holiday title shines bright. A must-purchase for holiday collections.” —School Library Journal

“The writing is vivid and engaging.” —CM Magazine

“Ungar’s busy watercolor illustrations bleed whimsically together. The resulting magical overlay drives home the holiday message…” Booklist

“The text’s conversational storytelling style invites readers (or listeners) to settle in, while wildly bright watercolor monoprints, often balanced by black-and-white spot art on facing pages, reflect both the Chelmites’ confusion and their sense of wonder.” The Horn Book Magazine
