Kimmel fans should stick with his Hanukkah title Asher and the Capmakers (1993). Kimmel takes some playful Hanukkah traditions and combines them with the old village trickster story, "The Tablecloth, the Donkey, and the Stick. When Jacob drops his dreidel down the well, the goblin who lives under the water gives the boy a magic dreidel that spins out delicious latkes (potato pancakes) with sour cream and applesauce.

Thorgaginn
Asher and the Capmakers by Eric Kimmel isn't precisely a folktale. This delightful story is rather an interweaving of folktales from many traditions. Asher runs to the neighbor in the middle of a storm to borrow an egg for the family's latkes. First he becomes lost, but eventually, he comes across mysterious fairies who wear magical caps that can wisk them away to the Pasha's Palace in Jerusalem.

While set at Chanukah, this book doesn't teach much about the holiday--which is fine--but it does thoroughly entertain.

I'd recommend this one for children 5 to 10 years old. It's a little scary for the youngest readers.

This is a traditional story re-told. A young boy goes looking for an egg for latkes and gets lost in the woods on a Hanukkah night adventure. We liked the illustrations and the magical twist to the story.
