This book was just OK

it was sort of boring because there is not much action. i would not read this book if i were you :[

Great but short!

The book taught me about how you should not be greedy. It also taught me about how important team work is. If you like a good moral, suspense and history, you will love it! It retells the Chanukah story like you're right there with them. P.S. big elephants.

I learned more about Jewish history from this book.

This book talked about being Jewish because it felt like it changed the past, but it didn't. It made me scared because I thought if I went back in time like that, there would be a very high chance I would die. But I still liked it.
