Note: 
This zany story is about a family of Jewish superheroes and their surly cat, Purr, who fight evil. The villains are some rodents from outer space who steal all of the hanukkiyot in the neighborhood just as Hanukkah is beginning. Its authors are quick with the quips and puns so the simple story bubbles with the kind of obvious yucks that kids are accustomed to from Disney movies and cartoons. Folded into the story is some information about Hanukkah and following it are some recipes, instructions for playing the dreidel game, and a glossary. The black and white illustrations are a good match for the writing, being simple, undemanding, and a little goofy.
