A magical dreidel adventure.
“Told in rhyming couplets, the tale holds storytelling appeal in both text and humorous illustrations. Chagall-like oil paintings and cut-paper art lend an Old World feel to the story.”—School Library Journal
“Everything in these illustrations is affectionately skewed, from the slightly oversize heads of the characters to the Brooklynesque street scenes occasioned by the boy narrator’s pursuit of the toy. The dynamically dizzy world happily challenges readers to stay on their toes.”—Publishers Weekly
“A wild, evocative adventure.”—Booklist
“Readers will laugh in delight . . . this book is pure fun.”—Richmond Times-Dispatch
