Maccabee!
Balsley, Tilda
Easy Picture Book BALSLEY

Comments  Summary  Reviews

From Publishers' Weekly:

The story behind Hanukkah gets the action-figure treatment, with Judah Maccabee as a chiseled hottie. The rhyming text is only serviceable ("So Judah led the scrappy band/ To fight for freedom through the land"), but it hardly matters: the real draw is the high drama of Harrington's sculptural illustrations and their superhero cartoon vibe, as the Maccabees fend off armored elephants and labor to rebuild the temple in Jerusalem. Ages 3-8. (Sept.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
