Description

From award-winning fantasy author Ellen Kushner comes an unforgettable adventure inspired by Jewish folklore and tradition.

Sara wishes her family celebrated Christmas or at least had one of the pretty trees she sees at her friends' houses. But at her family's big Chanukah party, mysterious guest Tante Miriam gives Sara a one-of-a-kind gift: an enormous, golden dreidel. Miriam warns her to be careful, for when she spins it, she's spinning miracles. Sara soon discovers there's much more to the dreidel than meets the eye, and before long she's spun herself into a whole new world--one of magical princesses, riddles, and demons. Can Sara discover her wisdom and rely on her courage to help a new friend and to find her way back home? The perfect Chanukah read!
