Never one to shy away from the darkly humorous, Lemony Snicket provides his readers with a holiday-themed version of the Gingerbread Boy. A Latke, who escapes from the boiling oil of a frying pan (hence the screaming) encounters a series of Christmas symbols along the road. Although he attempts to explain the meaning of Hanukkah to each of them, his attempts are in vain. A funny story for families who celebrate Christmas and Hanukkah or families who are just really hip. Best appreciated by 7-9 year olds who have already met the Gingerbread boy and who understand Snicket's dry humor.
