Note: 
"Twas the first night of Chanukah and on the fifth floor, There was holiday hustling and bustling galore." If these opening lines have a familiar ring, Newman's clever story and Brooker's engaging illustrations are totally fresh. While everyone is busy with Hanukkah preparations, a little boy's shiny new dreidel runs away, leading the boy, his family, and neighbors on a chase through the city neighborhood where they live, through a forest, to the shores of an ocean, and up into the sky where the dreidel becomes a star. Written in rhyming couplets that sparkle with vivid images, the story is enhanced by outstanding illustrations. A holiday treat!
