Product Details

Praise

“Colorful cartoon illustrations portray happy encounters between the knights and the ordinary folk, interspersed with hints to the dragon’s whereabouts. . . . For those on a quest for a different take on a holiday tail—oops!—tale.”Kirkus Reviews

“Kimmelman and Bernstein’s gentle spoof employs just enough amusing medieval jokes (Sir Gabriel dons an apron that reads ‘Kisseth the cook’ in Gothic type) to make the core idea fun to grasp: it takes good deeds of all shapes and sizes to make the world go ’round.” —Publishers Weekly

“Kimmelman’s slyly humorous text (‘”Worryeth not,” said Sir Lily.’) is complemented by Bernstein’s cartoon art, which features minimalist backgrounds, medieval illuminated letters, and expressive facial features. . . . this will be welcomed by families and religious schools.”Booklist

“The faux-medieval silliness is complemented with old-timey illustrations and heavily adorned initial caps on a parchment-white background. Back matter briefly explains the traditions of Hanukkah.”The Horn Book
