DREIDELS ON THE BRAIN, by Joel ben Izzy

brain

The story: It’s 1971, and Joel is looking for a Hanukkah miracle. Is that so much to ask? He just doesn’t want to end up the loser in his own story. Too bad it seems like God isn’t paying attention right this minute–cuz Joel isn’t picky. The miracle could be a snow day in California, or a chance to get out of looking like a dork in the school assembly. Or maybe…that his dad will wake up from the coma and not die. See? How hard could it be?

Mrs. Friend’s opinion: I loved this story! Joel is a laugh-out-loud narrator, and his adventures keep him in perpetual hot water. Forget about the weird cover and check this one out!
