Hershel and the Hanukkah Goblins: 25th Anniversary Edition

by Eric A. Kimmel

The 25th anniversary edition of this beloved Caldecott Honor-winning classic includes insightful notes from author Eric A. Kimmel and Holiday House publisher John Briggs, who recall both the story and its renowned illustrator, Trina Schart Hyman, with joy and fondness.

On the first night of Hanukkah, a weary traveler named Hershel of Ostropol eagerly approaches the next village, where plenty of latkes and merriment should warm him. But when he arrives, not a single candle is lit. The villagers are being tormented by a band of goblins who hate Hanukkah. Brave Hershel leaps to the villagers’ rescue. For seven nights he fools and ousts one dim-witted goblin after another. But on the eighth night, a truly awful goblin arrives to put an end to Hershel. What will it take for a lone man to stand up to such a monster, save Hanukkah, and live to tell the tale?
