Though it's the first night of Hanukkah, Rachel's family won't really be celebrating until next week. But Rachel wants to celebrate now, so she comes up with a good idea: she'll visit her neighbor, Mrs. Greenberg, and they can make latkes together.
Mrs. Greenberg (who some readers will remember from The Borrowed Hanukkah Latkes) keeps a very tidy home. And while Rachel is enthusiastic about making latkes, she's not very practiced -- or neat! Will Mrs. Greenberg enjoy her messy Hanukkah at all?
"Pattern and bright color abound in Cote's lighthearted, cartoonlike pictures, which channel the glow of the menorah on the table right onto the happy faces of the characters as they sit down to eat Rachel's latkes. A recipe, at the front of the book, completes this lively package, suggested for children who are already familiar with the holiday." -- Stephanie Zvirin, Booklist
