The Golden Dreydl Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Sara finds Chanukah celebrations boring. When her Tante Miriam arrives and gives her a Golden Dreydl, everything changes. The dreydl, an enchanted princess in disguise, takes Sara on a journey to a magical world.

When the princess is taken by the Demon King, who possesses the power of the Tree of Life, it is Sara who must use her wit to save the princess and return her to her parents — King Solomon and the Queen of Sheba.

A delightful holiday tale that weaves together threads of Jewish folklore and tradition with fantasy and humor.

Synopsis:

Ellen Kushner is the host and writer of the national public radio series PRI's Sound & Spirit. She is the award-winning author of fantasy novels for teens and adults. Ellen lives in New York City.
