Reviews

PRAISE FOR Yitzi and the Giant Menorah

..".. a pleasant addition to Hanukkah collections." --Kirkus Reviews

"Ungar's... compositions are tightly focused, his signature folkloric style and swirling pastels make for some stunning, if earnest (given the subject matter) images." --Publishers Weekly

"Successfully blending Jewish folklore and distinctive visuals, this holiday title shines bright. A must-purchase for holiday collections." --School Library Journal

"The writing is vivid and engaging." --CM Magazine

"Ungar's busy watercolor illustrations bleed whimsically together. The resulting magical overlay drives home the holiday message..." --Booklist

"The text's conversational storytelling style invites readers (or listeners) to settle in, while wildly bright watercolor monoprints, often balanced by black-and-white spot art on facing pages, reflect both the Chelmites' confusion and their sense of wonder." --The Horn Book Magazine
