Hanukkah in Alaska is unlike anywhere else.

Snow piles up over the windows. Daylight is only five hours long. And one girl finds a moose camped out in her backyard, right near her favorite blue swing. She tries everything to lure it away: apples, carrots, even cookies. But it just keeps eating more tree! It’s not until the last night of Hanukkah that a familiar holiday tradition provides the perfect—and surprising—solution.

Praise for Hanukkah in Alaska

"This refreshingly particular Hanukkah celebration effectively encourages readers to gain a new understanding of “miracle.”" -- Kirkus Reviews
 
"Brown crafts an informative Hanukkah tale accompanied by lovely acrylic and gouache illustrations by Schuett." --Publishers Weekly
 
"Glorious." - School Library Journal
 

"The text incorporates some facts about Alaska, the northern lights, and moose behavior (though do they really love latkes?). Luminous acrylic and gouache paintings reflect the "rainbow on black velvet" that is the aurora borealis." - The Horn Book
