Note: 
It's Sukkot and the Roths have invited two neighborhood kids, Duane and Justine, to sleep overnight in their sukkah. The fun of celebrating the holiday is shortlived, however, because the setting is Oakland and the crisis of the story is the devastating fire that burned over a thousand houses in the Oakland hills. Inter-twining themes of community and kindness to animals, this features the author/illustrator's usual cast of multi-ethnic characters in a large, illustrated format. The story is compelling but it can also be frightening and is probably best read to children by parents or a sensitive adult who is prepared to offer genuine and convincing reassurances.
