"Children will be captivated by the attractive pictures of the Ziz and will love listening to the tale, one that lends itself to reading aloud."
--Church and Synagogue Libraries

"...the value of friendship, working together, and even Tikkun Olam are nicely woven into the story."
--Jewish Book World

"Jules incorporates the theme of sharing, as well as apologizing, in a droll version of a holiday tale."
--Kirkus Reviews

"Jacqueline Jules stories about the Ziz a fabulous and colourful mythical bird are always among my favourites. In this one, she relates the miracle of Chanukah through the prism of a story that reads like a gorgeous fairytale, in which a lesson about sharing and generosity is handled with a lovely subtlety that never overshadows the narrative."
