Bubbe’s first bite leads to an insatiable taste for oil, latkes, applesauce, gelt, even menorahs! But as the family tries to distract her from her gluttony, the items she devours grow ever larger. Will they be able to reconnect with her and bring her home for the last night of Chanukah—or will her feasting go too far?
Beyond the joy of a Jewish take on this most American of folk songs, the illustrations here offer hilarious parodies of great works of art by da Vinci, Rembrandt, Vermeer, Hopper, Rockwell, Matisse, Picasso, and other masters, adding a whole new layer of humor and culture to the familiar tune.
