Title: Kirkus review of Kugel for Hanukkah?
Post by: carrots on August 18, 2019, 07:44 AM
Oh, my goodness!!

I am beyond thrilled to be able to share a Kirkus review for my forthcoming picture book, Kugel for Hanukkah?!!!

https://www.kirkusreviews.com/book-reviews/gretchen-m-everin/kugel-for-hanukkah/

If there's any goodness in Kugel for Hanukkah?, it is because of the collaboration with editor Joni Sussman and illustrator Rebecca Ashdown, as well as the support and encouragement I've received on these boards. It's a long slog from idea to book....and there's no team I'd rather trudge with than Blueboarders!!!  :grouphug2
