Book Review: Werewolves Don’t Celebrate Hanukkah (2022)

Werewolves Don’t Celebrate Hanukkah by Michelle Franklin

Werewolves prefer their doughnuts jam-filled, because they cannot have chocolate. Some believe that werewolves can eat chocolate in their human forms, but many are afraid to test this, so no one has tried.

OH. MY. GOSH.

Hanukkah is the international day of sock-exchange. Socks make popular gifts because everyone needs them, except werewolves, who slice through the toe bits with their claws. Werewolves love Hanukkah, but not enough to do socks about it.

I AM NOT OVER HOW GREAT THIS IS!!!

They would be adept at playing dreidel. They would have to spin the dreidel in their human forms, but once the dreidel is spinning, the werewolves could chase it round in circles, which they’re used to doing, because they often chase their long fluffy tails.

EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

ISN’T IT THE CUTEST?!?!?

I literally have tears in my eyes from laughing the whole way through this. Every single year I ask for more Jewish-themed holiday books and this was just the most amazing find!! It’s cute! It’s wholesome! It’s hilarious! The art is utterly adorable and just – I’m so impressed and delighted. This is the perfect book to get for any little kid (and adult, clearly! I’m now this book’s number one fan lmao)!

It’s so sweet and lovely and I just want to recommend it to everyone. PLEASE GET YOURSELF A COPY NOW!!!

Thank you so much to the author for an ARC copy.
