This Hanukkah tale conveys the original Hanukkah miracle story through the unexpected journey of a young Russian boy named Simon who is traveling to America alone. After a tragedy leaves him stranded on an iceberg floating in the ocean, Simon learns that things are not always what they seem and miracles can come by any means. My review at TheCelebrityCafe.com provides a more comprehensive review, as well as a little background information on Kimmel and the illustrator, Matthew Trueman.
