It's the last night of Hanukkah, and more relatives are coming than originally planned. Rachel decides to borrow potatoes from Mrs. Greenberg. She asks Mrs. Greenberg, who is all alone, to come for Hanukkah. But Mrs. Greenberg is very stubborn!

A young girl finds a way to include her elderly neighbor in her family's Hanukkah celebration.

Children's Literature Review:
Rachel's house will be filled to overflowing with invited guests and also last-minute guests, but the potato sack and egg tray are empty by now. How will there be enough latkes? Mrs. Greenberg next door might help, and is happy to, but she just won't come join Rachel's family for Hanukkah. "'She's got a heart of gold, but she's as stubborn as an ox," says Mama.'" But she meets her match in Rachel and rediscovers the joy of celebrating within a family rather than alone. The story is delicious, and the language is, too, with treasures like: "Mrs. Greenberg's house was always clean and tidy, like its face was just scrubbed and its blouse was tucked in, while Rachel's house always looked like it was still in its pajamas and needed to brush its hair yet." Cote's gouache and colored pencil pictures are a delight, as lively as the story they enhance.
