"Dickens's A Christmas Carol finds a whole new expression in the hands of Esme, who rewrites the Christmas classic with the voice and humor of Jewish tradition. Woven into this long read-aloud story are elements and history of the holiday and the early twentieth century. The hero is Old Scroogemacher. He mistreats his immigrant workers until he is visited by the Rabbi of Hanukkah Past, who reminds him of the origins of the holiday. Then the Rabbi of Hanukkah Present lets him see the crowded tenements where his employees live. Finally, the Rabbi of Hanukkah Future clues him into current labor practices and shows him choices for his nephew Moshe's future. Yiddish phrases abound. There is much humor along the way in this story made for reading aloud. Ages 6 to 10." -- Children's Literature
