It’s a quick read which is nice, it shows the true meaning of friendship, teaches history, and is funny. It was great and educational!

Exciting, thrilling, and engaging.

Review by Hudson

This book will tell readers about the Hannukah story from 2 children's point of view. The best part of this book is that it is a graphic novel so you can see what is in the author's mind. The illustrations were very colorful and kept me reading.

pretty good.

Review by BookCreator

The book is about two friends that end up in a war and start fighting each other. (the war between the Greeks and Jews.) The reason its four stars is because I don't really like the ending.

Review by AudTea

In my opinion it is not something I am honestly interested in ,but it is a good book, but perhaps not my favourite in the world.
