This easy-to-read chapter book is part of Hachai's Fun-to-Read series, which features brave children acting courageously to exemplify fundamental Jewish values. It is set in Jerusalem in the time of King Hezekiah, at a time when the Assyrian army, having already conquered Israel, was marching on Judah and preparing to lay siege to Jerusalem. The main character is an eleven year old boy who labors to save the city by helping to dig the tunnel that will keep it supplied with fresh water. The historical setting, mildly exciting plot, and characterization are woven into a readable story that will interest newly independent readers.
