Hanukkah Haiku

Hanukkah Haiku Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Here's a cultural crossover that pays off: a traditionally Japanese poetic form used to celebrate the eight nights of Hanukkah. There's one haiku for each night, and stepped pages add one candle to the menorah every time the page is turned. The simple poetry is set off perfectly by Karla Gudeon's vibrant, freewheeling artwork. A perfect gift, or good to reread each year, Hanukkah Haiku is a jubilant, unforgettable journey through the eight nights of Hanukkah.

About the Author

Harriet Ziefert has vivid childhood memories of lighting the Hanukkah candles with her maternal grandfather, who always took her hand in his as he held the Shammash.

Karla Gudeon's paintings and prints are joyful representations of life, love, family, and Jewish ritual and culture. Her artwork is displayed in galleries and distinguished collections throughout the country and abroad, and she created illustrated characters and backgrounds for an exhibit at the Jewish Museum in New York City. Karla lives in New York with Kevin, Sam and Max, and Lila Mae.
