Describes the history behind the Jewish holiday of Hanukkah, explaining that it began after the Temple of Jerusalem was reclaimed and restored to its former glory by the Jews after being desecrated by Antiochus IV.

Hachette Book Group
In the year 165 B.C.E., Mattathias and the Maccabees defeated the Syrians and reclaimed their Great Temple in Jerusalem. Though they planned an eight-day celebration to rededicate the Temple, they had lamp oil for only one day. Miraculously, the oil burned for eight days. Every year Jews around the world celebrate this miracle at Hanukkah.

Now internationally acclaimed artist and graphic designer Seymour Chwast retells the story of Hanukkah in an innovative format in which pages gradually increase in size. This Hanukkah book is sure to become a family favorite.
