Queen of the Hanukkah Dosas
In this sweet and humorous picture book, Queen of the Hanukkah Dosas, a multi-cultural family (Mom's Indian; Dad's Jewish) celebrate Hanukkah while incorporating traditional Indian food. Instead of latkes, this family celebrates Hanukkah with tasty Indian dosas. To her brother's chagrin, little Sadie won't stop climbing on everything both at home and at the Indian grocery store, even while preparing the dosas. As the family puts the finishing touches on their holiday preparations, they accidentally get locked out of the house. Sadie and her climbing skills just may be exactly what is needed to save the day.
In addition to Queen of the Hanukkah Dosas, Pamela Ehrenberg is the author of the young readers novels Ethan, Suspended and Tillmon County Fire. She now lives in Washington, DC, where she works at the National Association for the Education of Young Children and lives with her daughter and son near the National Zoo.

"The illustrations are bright and cheerful with endpapers that are a mouthwatering display of ingredients for Indian food. A delightful culinary adventure celebrates traditional Indian food as part of a Jewish holiday." —Kirkus
"...there’s something comforting about the steady step-by-step trajectory of the text and Sarkar’s stylish cartooning. Readers will also appreciate how the narrator turns a customized version of “I Have a Little Dreidel” (“I have a little dosa...”) into a sister-wrangling tool." —Publishers Weekly
"Sarkar’s vibrant illustrations focus on the entire family—mom, dad, kids, amma-amma and work with Ehrenberg’s accessible text to highlight Jewish and Indian cultures." —The Horn Book Magazine
