Biscuit’s (Biscuit Goes to School, p. 877, etc.) back and this time he’s celebrating Hanukkah. (Last year he celebrated Christmas, but that’s okay—lots of puppies celebrate both.) The children participate in various holiday activities—playing dreidel, making beeswax candles, eating latkes, while Biscuit engages in related naughty activities revealed by lifting a flap on the right side of the page. After getting into the jelly donuts, overturning the apples, and eating chocolate gelt, Biscuit redeems himself by offering his host, an enormous dog that sometimes looks like an enormous cat, a gift of treats. Little ones will enjoy lifting the flaps, while older children may attempt this as an easy reader. A pleasant addition to the Biscuit canon. (Picture book. 1-5)
