Meet the Authors
Acclaimed author Emily Jenkins (A Greyhound, a Groundhog) and Caldecott Award-winning artist Paul O. Zelinsky (Rapunzel) bring the beloved All-of-a-Kind Family to life in a new format. The story returns to 1912, on the Lower East Side of NYC, as the family prepares for Hanukkah. When Gertie is not allowed to help prepare latkes, she throws a tantrum. She listens to the sounds and smells of the family getting ready to celebrate from the girls' bedroom until Papa comes home and she is allowed out--and given the best job of all: lighting the first candle on the menorah.
