Thanks for mentioning the "Hanukkah Read Up" list we created at AJL last year. Just to mention a few more recent titles, you might want to try Hanukkah Moon by Deborah da Costa (about Mexican Jewish Hanukkah customs), Letter on the Wind: A Chanukah Tale by Sarah Lamstein, and chapter book Like a Maccabee by Barbara Bietz. Also, if you'd like to hear interviews with the creators of Letter on the Wind and Like a Maccabee, you can listen to the December '07 episode of my podcast, The Book of Life, at
