Booklist Review: "Ages 5^-8. Every year Rachel's mother invites their neighbor Mrs. Greenberg for dinner on Hanukkah, and every year she refuses, not wanting to be a bother. As Mama says, "She's got a heart of gold, but she's as stubborn as an ox." When Mama agrees at the last minute to invite eight more people to their Hanukkah dinner, she sends Rachel to borrow one ingredient after another from Mrs. Greenberg as she makes more and more potato latkes. Little by little, Rachel (showing her own good heart and streak of stubbornness) works away at Mrs. Greenberg, inviting her, urging her, and finally maneuvering her into joining their family for the feast. The bright, jovial illustrations move to a rhythm of their own, delighting with repeated lines and patterns. Even the "solid" tones are made of overlaid strokes of color that seem to lift the pictures a little off the pages. The well-told, well-illustrated, and entertaining holiday story has its own heart of gold. --Carolyn Phelan"
