Ideal for young readers who are outgrowing the typical Hanukkah picture books, this short, illustrated chapter book tells the story of Jacob Stern and his family, who are visited by a mysterious stranger on the first night of Hanukkah. The stranger leaves behind a golden dreidl as a gift, and late that night, with a magical spin, a girl named Sarah appears to take Jacob on an extraordinary adventure in Latkaland. The two must draw on their wits, courage, and history lessons as they embark on a humorous and exciting journey inspired by the story of the Maccabees.
