Note: 
All aboard! for Engineer Ari’s third ride on his historic Israeli train. This time Ari’s problem threatens his Hanukkah celebration with his fellow engineers; it also brings him into contact with Israel’s Bedouins. Readers learn holiday customs and biblical history traveling with Ari near Jerusalem plus they experience a beneficial interaction between Arab and Jew. The story ends on the recurring Hanukkah note of miracle, this time stressing discoveries, especially friendship, more than scant oil. Author and illustrator bring a new adventure with old friends. The usual warm, fact-packed historical note ends the fiction.
