The Talmud meets Mad Magazine meets the Simpsons in Terry Abrahamson's hilarious retelling of the story of history's first oil crisis. On the first night of the Festival of Lights, the Moskowitz family of Skokie, Illinois (the only state that rhymes with Oy!) is visited by Hannukah's first super-prophet, a six foot hippie cat in a tie-dyed t-shirt and matching "Meowmulkah." Hannukatz then faces off with the spoiled Moskowitz kids, conjuring pop icons ranging from Stephen Spielberg to Chuck Berry in an effort to teach Josh and Emily the true meaning of Hannukah. This book is also the inspiration for Abrahamson's hit show Hannukatz the Musical featuring the songs "Do the Chhhh," "No Jews Allowed," and "Hannukah is Not the Jewish Christmas."
