Horn Book Review

When a homemade 'Sukkah' -- a booth or hut used in the Jewish harvest festival -- and a cat named Tikvah miraculously survive a devastating fire, neighbors in a section of Oakland, California, whose homes were destroyed, find a reason to celebrate. The author uses words and pictures to convey the strength of the relationships among people experiencing the ruinous effects of a natural disaster. From HORN BOOK 1994, (c) Copyright 2010.
