Arthur A. Levine shares THE HANUKKAH MAGIC OF NATE GADOL, illustrated by Kevin Hawkes. When Arthur and I last spoke at ALA midwinter 2020 in Philadelphia, it was to launch Levine Querido, the independent publisher bearing his surname. THE HANUKKAH MAGIC OF NATE GADOL is a new picture book that introduces readers to Nate Gadol, a Hanukkah spirit who can make anything last as long as it is needed. It’s an exquisite story told best by Arthur himself, so I won’t waste another moment. A quick note just to say that Arthur was driving while we spoke. You’ll notice it in his audio track and I didn’t want it to catch you off guard.
