This is a fun book to share during Hanukkah. Written by Eric Kimmel and illustrated by Trina Schart Hyman. On the first night of Hanukkah, a weary traveler named Hershel of Ostropol eagerly approaches a village, where plenty of latkes and merriment should warm him. But when he arrives not a single candle is lit. A band of frightful goblins has taken over the synagogue, and the villagers cannot celebrate at all! Hershel vows to help them. Using his wits, the clever trickster faces down one goblin after the next, night after night.  But can one man alone save Hanukkah and live to tell the tale?

Another fun book is The Chanukkah Guest by Eric Kimmel and illustrated by Giora Carmi. Elderly Bubba Brayna is honored to serve the rabbi her renowned potatoe latkes, but when a bear shows up on the first night of Chanukkah instead of the rabbi, the nearly blind and deaf old woman does not notice the difference.
