Hershel and the Hanukkah Goblins, Trina Schart Hyman

I meant to show this book during Hanukkah, but it got buried in my pile of books to be scanned. In this story by Eric Kimmel, a man named Hershel of Ostropol helps a village by getting rid of the goblins who haunt the synagogue and don't allow the villagers to celebrate Hanukkah.

As time goes on the work of Trina Schart Hyman is more and more appreciated. I think she will go on to be regarded as one of the great illustrators of her time.
