by Jon Koons Illustrated by S. D. Schindler
Hanukkah is fast approaching in the village of Chelm, but the Rabbi is away. Unfortunately, not one of the villagers remembers how Hanukkah is supposed to be celebrated. So they send Yossel, a simple young man, to the neighboring village to learn what he can. Yossel makes a wrong turn, but he does find some people celebrating a holiday. The question is: Is it the right holiday? This original story, based on the legendary town of fools, is perfect for interfaith families and anyone looking for a good chuckle at holiday time.
