Each night during Hanukkah, Mendel’s children savor the rich scent of latkes as they stand outside the window of Feivel, the rich merchant. Although they go to bed hungry, they sleep with smiles on their faces. On the 8th and last night, the stingy Feivel discovers the shabby brood outside his window. He brings them before Rabbi Yonah and insists that Mendel’s family pay a fine for “stealing” the scent of his latkes. What’s fair is fair, he insists. The wise rabbi agrees, but his decision is not what Feivel expects! Louise August’s woodcuts are modern yet still reflective of a time and place removed; they are just right for this folktale which inspires with an enduring lesson. A Bank St. College Children’s Book of the Year, and an Amer. Bookseller “Pick of the Lists.” Ill.
