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.
"This is a splendid mix of information about the state, the holiday, moose, and the aurora borealis (an author’s note adds info). The acrylic-and-gouache art often glows, echoing the theme of light that threads the story." -- Ilene Cooper, Booklist
