I’m so pleased that Publishers Weekly gave Esther’s Hanukkah Disaster a really enthusiastic review! Don’t take my word for it. Here’s what someone with obviously impeccable taste wrote:
“In this adorable and brightly illustrated Hanukkah story from Sutton (Don’t Call Me Sidney) and Rowland (Little Nelly’s Big Book), Esther the gorilla joyfully sets out to the Jungle Store to get everything she needs to give Hanukkah presents to her friends. She happily chooses the gifts, but as she hands them out to her monkey, elephant, hyena, turtle, and zebra pals, Esther realizes that her gifts may not have been as perfectly thought-out as she had hoped (such as the jogging suit she purchases for the turtle). Esther’s innocent mistakes and her ingenious solution will prompt laughter. Ages 4–9. (Sept.)” http://publishersweekly.com/978-0-7613-9044-2
I had the opportunity to read this funny children’s book- and realized that many of my adult friends and clients make the same mistake as Esther!
I’m sure both children and adults will enjoy reading, and coming up with their own solutions!
Another wonderful children’s book from Jane! Bravo!
Congrats, Jane! That’s terrific news!
