A Very Schlemiel Thanksganukah
A Very Schlemiel Thanksganukah
Whether you call it Thanksganukah, Thanks g' Hanukkah, or Thanksg Chanukah, the truth is that the Schlemiels thought of it first! Experts have claimed that 2013 was the first and possibly only time in history that Hanukkah and Thanksgiving coincided. But, experts are usually wrong when the Brothers Schlemiel are involved… Abraham and Adam Schlemiel, the identical twins first encountered in the novel, "The Brothers Schlemiel" return for a new adventure in this delightful story. Set in the New World several years after the close of "The Brothers Schlemiel", Abraham now works as the chef at the famous Fraunces Tavern in New York City. Adam, a greenhorn fresh off the boat from Ellis Island, lives with his brother and searches for meaningful work. The New World is not so much of a pleasure for him… At last, the twins travel to Chelmsford, MA, where they immediately get into trouble, burn down a barn, and create both the world's first Thanksg Hanukkah, and the world's first fried turkey. A warm, delightful and entertaining story for all ages to read and share. Mark Binder is the author of "The Brothers Schlemiel" and "A Hanukkah Present" - Finalist for the national Jewish Book Award for Family Literature. His latest project is "Cinderella Spinderella" the first multicultural illustrated ebook for families.
