The Yiddish chicken from Beautiful Yetta is back, this time living in Brooklyn and telling her parrot friends about her life as a free-range chicken. The discovery of a tiny kitten in the snowy cold of a Hanukkah night leads the troop to give it a home with Grandmother, who is delighted with the gift and gives them a plate of latkes. The story is presented in English and occasionally translated into Spanish, Yiddish, and Hebrew. Illustrations of indelible markers, brush pens, and pen and ink add to Daniel Pinkwater’s wry humor as he shows the confusion of the parrots who believe that cats are enemies. At the end is a chart of the Hebrew “aleph-bet,” so called because of the first two letters, with corresponding letters and names under symbol. P6Q8 December 2014 review by Nel Ward.
