Three plates, Selma reminded herself. Just three plates this Chanukah.

About the Author

Michelle Edwards is the author-illustrator of many books for children, including CHICKEN MAN, winner of the National Jewish Book Award, and the Jackson Friends series. She is also the co-author, with Phyllis Root, of WHAT'S THAT NOISE?, illustrated by Paul Meisel. She says, "I wrote PAPA'S LATKES one very cold Chanukah morning when the house was still filled with that rich Chanukah smell of potatoes, onions, and oil — latkes from the night before."

Stacey Schuett has illustrated many books for children, including PURPLE MOUNTAIN MAJESTIES by Barbara Younger. PAPA'S LATKES is her first book with Candlewick Press. She says, "This is a lovely story, and I wanted the paintings to reflect the love and warmth in the family, despite the pain of missing their mother."
