Polacco has a warm, colorful illustrative style she applies to what at first seems the simple story of a Jewish girl, Trisha, and her Christian neighbors, whose bout with scarlet fever at Christmas threatens to ruin Trisha’s Hanukkah. Trisha and her family respond with a loving gesture that is rewarded in kind.
