Kugel for Hanukkah?

Hanukkah seems like it's going to be a disappointment to this little girl — or is it? She's dreaming of a new pet, but it doesn't seem like her hopes will be fulfilled. And while the little girl hopes for sweet goodies to eat, her grandmother keeps making vegetable latkes instead. Every night, she gets another odd gift: a thermometer, a ceramic bowl... Meanwhile, Grandma looks like she's getting parts of something too: cinnamon sticks, chocolate, candied cranberries.

It's a puzzle until the eighth night, when Grandma gets everything to make cranberry chocolate chip kugel — and the little girl gets a pet iguana, who she names after her new favorite treat! This charming story with a touch of suspense includes a recipe to try your own kugel at home.

"Each night of Hanukkah, Grandma makes a different latke (sweet potato, beet, carrot). And each night also dashes the hopes of the young narrator for a Hanukkah pet; instead, she gets... a strange thermometer? A ceramic bowl?... With cheery, identically composed cartoon spreads leading up to the reveal (the family gathers on the sofa on at left, while the narrator unwraps gifts by the menorah at right), Everin and Ashdown build the suspense for their holiday mystery." — Publishers Weekly
