Imagine James Marshall's The Stupids celebrating Hanukkah, and you'd get the Latke family!

Lucy Latke's family is just like yours or mine. Except that they're potato pancakes. And also, they are completely clueless. After lighting the menorah and gobbling the gelt, Grandpa Latke tells everyone the Hanukkah story, complete with mighty Mega Bees who use a giant dreidel to fight against the evil alien potatoes from Planet Chhh. It's up to the Latke family dog to set the record straight. (To start with, they were Maccabees, not Mega Bees...) But he'll have to get the rest of the Latkes to listen to him first!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We love this book! My 5 year old daughter LOVES this book - and so do I! It's a book about Chanukah told by none other than a hysterically funny family of latkes. The brilliant story and funny drawings manage to sneakily teach you the story of Chanukah while you are laughing your head off. It's one of those books that is so fun to read to your kid that you don't mind at all when they yell, "Again! Again!" Can't praise this book enough, it delights on every level.
