Latke Who Couldn't Stop Screaming : A Christmas Story (Hardcover) (Lemony Snicket)
About this item
Latkes are potato pancakes served at Hanukkah, and Lemony Snicket is an alleged children’s author. For the first time in literary history, these two elements are combined in one book. A particularly irate latke is the star of The Latke Who Couldn’t Stop Screaming, but many other holiday icons appear and even speak: flashing colored lights, cane-shaped candy, a pine tree. Santa Claus is briefly discussed as well. The ending is happy, at least for some. People who are interested in any or all of these things will find this book so enjoyable it will feel as though Hanukkah were being celebrated for several years, rather than eight nights.
After being created, a latke jumps out of the frying pan, runs down the street screaming, and explains to those that it meets why it is an important part of the Hanukkah tradition.
