Synopses & Reviews

Review:

Each of Hanukkah's eight days has its own spread. Sabuda's intricate and inventive paper engineering is a little miracle in keeping with the miraculous oil of the event that Hanukkah commemorates.

(Sept.)â–" Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
