The creators of Hanukkah! here offer an affectionate portrait of a family Passover seder, with text and pictures chockablock with intricate, often amusing details. The star of this beguiling brood is Uncle Harry, a part-time prestidigitator whose profession may be ´´pulling teeth out of people´s mouths´´ but whose true love is ´´pulling rabbits out of people´s hats.´´ From his arrival with gifts galore and a new bride (´´This is my lucky charm-this is my Eda´´), Harry´s high jinks confirm the tale´s originality. It´s not only the busy kitchen that generates warmth: the story, told through daughter Molly´s engaging voice, captures the emotions of a joyful family gathering while unobtrusively weaving in abundant information about a complex ritual. Hafner´s bustling illustrations, at once cartoony and realistic, imbue this clan with individuality galore. From Aunt Eda in her ´´sparkling´´ costume to ever-groggy Uncle Arnold to Grandma as she approvingly presides over the chicken soup, these folks know how to share the magic.
