Book Review #381
Hershel And The Hanukkah Goblins by Eric Kimmel, illustrated by Trina Schart Hyman
Rating: one star (out of four)

This book just didn't fly for me.  I thought it was a little oxymoronish to have goblins and hanukkah together.  I also felt like this story "borrowed" certain elements from other fairy tales.  The drawings were interesting, I really like Trina Schart Hyman's style, but I really wasn't impressed with her rendition of goblins.  I wouldn't recommend this book.
