In creating this book, Howard Shapiro drew upon his recollections of growing up being the only Jewish kid in his neighborhood and elementary school. His hope is that the parents who read this book to their children will identify with what the feelings and emotions that the characters of Tom and Tupelo experience during the holiday season. They can then talk to their children about their own experiences growing up and have fun while doing it! After reading the story, maybe they could all listen to the Adam Sandler Hanukkah song!
Howard Shapiro has written four children's books including the critically acclaimed Hockey Days and its sequel Hockey Player for Life. His debut graphic novel, The Stereotypical Freaks is due out in January, 2013. He lives in Pittsburgh with his wife and two sons. www.howardshapiro.net email@example.com
