Storyteller Joel Ben Izzy branches out from his live stage performances with this semi-autobiographical middle grade novel, Dreidels on the Brain, that takes place over the eight days of Hanukkah. You can read my review of the book in School Library Journal here. You can listen to Joel telling the story about an orange that inspired a key scene in this book on public radio's Snap Judgement here.
Listen carefully to the podcast to hear Joel's explanation of how you can win a copy of his CD Lights & Laughter: Joel Ben Izzy Spins Hanukkah Tales. When you've got the answer to his question, email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
