Larry’s Latkes

Larry’s Latkes by Jenna Waldman, Illustrated by Ben Whitehouse, Millbrook Press 2021

Big Larry has a popular Latke food truck he brings out every year at Hannukah. Everyone loves his Grandma’s classic recipe, but this year he wants to cook up something new and different. He finds various fruits and veggies at the farmers market and attempts to make latkes out of them. But his fruit and veggie latkes are a disaster, … until he realizes that he can combine the old with the new. He mixes in potatoes and voila! “He’s made the perfect menu for his party guests at last.” This sweet rhyming tale will surely satisfy readers young and old. The illustrations are fun and feature cute and friendly animals of every kind. I especially love the back matter about Hannukah, which includes a recipe for Larry’s Rainbow Latkes. Yum!

*Note: I was given a free PDF copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
