Traveling storyteller Joel ben Izzy recounts the story of Hanukkah, as you've never heard it before, along with seven other tales to keep you laughing for all eight nights of the festival of lights. Through it all, Joel manages to capture both the warmth and humor of the holiday, with the stories woven together by the lilting music of The Kings of Klezmer.
"In this sterling collection of Hanukkah tales, the gifted storyteller relays the history of the holidays with rollicking irreverence." (Booklist) "If you like a) Garrison Keillor or b) Daniel Pinkwater or c) both, check our Joel ben Izzy....This master of the wistful and funny is just the thing for those long holiday car treks." (The Washington Post)
