The Latke Who Couldn't Stop Screaming is hardcover, foil-stamped, and full of colorful illustrations, well-suited for giving, receiving, or clutching selfishly in trembling hands. Latkes are potato pancakes served at Hanukkah, and Lemony Snicket is an alleged children's author. For the first time in literary history, these two elements are combined in one book. A particularly irate latke is the star ofThe Latke Who Couldn't Stop Screaming, but many other holiday icons appear and even speak: flashing colored lights, cane-shaped candy, a pine tree. Santa Claus is briefly discussed as well. The ending is happy, at least for some. People who are interested in any or all of these things will find this book so enjoyable it will feel as though Hanukkah were being celebrated for several years, rather than eight nights.
Lemony Snicket is the author ofLemony Snicket: The Unauthorized Autobiography andA Series Of Unfortunate Events. His whereabouts are unknown. Lisa Brown is the author and illustrator ofBaby Make Me Breakfast, Baby Mix Me a Drink, Baby Fix My Car, andBaby Do My Banking. She lives in San Francisco with her family.
