Hershel and the Hanukkah Goblins

by AnchorageSchools (WorldCat user published 2014-12-10) Excellent Permalink

This is a fun story that mixes Jewish tradition with some pesky goblins who do not like Hanukkah. One brave man goes to the Jewish Synagogue to break the spell and end the goblin's resistance to this important Jewish holiday. Great story for young readers.
