"Ready for a story?"

Grandma Karen asked.


said Owen.

Every night of Hanukkah, after Owen -- the Official Candle Lighter -- lights the menorah, Grandma Karen kicks off her cowboy boots and tells him a bedtime story.

On the first night there's the inspiring story of a girl who dreams of becoming a rabbi.

On the fourth night there's the amazing story of the alien who gets lost in a little girl's backyard.

And on the seventh night there's the silly story about a boy who wants to be a baby...and whose parents let him!

Join Owen in discovering how each of these stories is also a celebration of his own heritage in this heartwarming book about faith, family, and the miracle of Hanukkah.
