Praise

* ”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
