“The most imaginative Hannukah tale of the season.”—Publishers Weekly

On the first night of Hanukkah, two tricky devils arrive in the town of Brisk to cause mischief. They use a magic word — Zigazak! — to make dreidels dance and latkes fly. The good citizens of Brisk panic and appeal to their wise rabbi for help. He triumphs over the devils in a contest of wits, and soon sends them packing. But his real triumph is the ability to see the good in all things, even devils’ tricks, helping the townsfolk enjoy their most magical Hanukkah ever.

“The breezy text and expressive humor of the illustrations make this a fine choice for Hanukkah storytimes.”—School Library Journal
