Illustrated by the award-winning artist of I Need My Monster.

McMillan Palgrave

Shmelf is one of Santa's most important elves. He's part of the List Checking department, and he makes sure all the good boys and girls get their presents! But when Shmelf finds out that some children are missing from Santa’s list, he goes to investigate.

What Shmelf uncovers is Hanukkah, a wondrous and joyful holiday that Jewish families celebrate each year. As Shmelf observes a family lighting the menorah, playing dreidel, and hearing the Hanukkah story, he sees how special the traditions of the holiday truly are—and he wants to be a part of it! Luckily, Santa just might have a special role in mind for Shmelf....

The rich traditions of Hanukkah come to life in this whimsical and magical story that’s perfect for the holiday season.

A sweet story told in rhyme about Shmelf, the Hanukkah Elf. Wolfe does a good job of combining the holiday traditions of Christmas with Hanukkah, and creates an “Elf on the Shelf” type of character for Jewish children.
