This family friendly partially animated story follows the adventures of Latke, a dog with beautiful golden-brown fur the color of a potato latke (pancake). Written by Ellen Fischer and colorfully illustrated by Tiphanie Beeke, the story is capably read by Kirby Heyborne. Adopted from the shelter, the playful pup causes mishaps on each night of Hanukkah. He eats the sufganiyot (jelly doughnuts), tears open presents, destroys gift wrapping, chews dreidels, consumes latkes, slobbers over chocolate money, and eats the menorah candles. Despite these calamities, the family continues to love him, and Latke exclaims each night that he is one lucky dog. On the final night of the holiday, the family gives Latke his own present and teaches him to eat only the food that's in his bowl. Symbols of the holiday appear throughout this charming story that introduces Hanukkah to young viewers. Pair this with Planet Matzah Ball: Chanukah and Passover (2015), from SISU.
