Good But Not Exciting

I liked this book.

This book taught me more about Jewish holidays, rituals, and even food.

I liked this book, but I felt it was not the most original. I have definitely read better and more exciting books. Not much sets it apart from any other book.

In Driedels on the Brain, Joel tries to balance being Jewish, his weird family, doing magic, and trying to survive school without humiliating himself. It gets pretty hilarious.

AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!

I learned more about Jewish history from this book.

This book has 8 chapters each chapter for the eight nights of Chanukah.
It is a very well written book with a lot of details.
I learned more about Chanukah and especially how important it is to be nice to your DAD.

There were a few parts where I couldn't put it down, but other times were not the best. You get to see what it's like to be Joel, his family and his friends. You can relate it to your everyday life, but it wasn't the best book from PJ Our Way.

Cool Beans, but.......
Submitted 2/6/2019 by Redbird9

This book was just OK

This book was pretty cool, not totally but cool, yeah. I LOVE books, but this book was just OK. But I really like how the author spells so many different ways of Hanukkah (Chanukah or however you want to spell it!).

So yeah, a cool beans book!
