Note: 
The gifted storyteller, Peninnah Schram, has drawn on Jewish oral tradition plus her own memories and experiences to create an original story for Hanukkah featuring Elijah. The plot follows a familiar pattern: Elijah in the guise of an old man is invited to share a poor family's meagre meal and, in return for their kindness, he leaves them with spiritual and material riches. The narrative is a bit choppy; this is a story better told than read. The illustrations are commonplace.
