Sadie and her family are poor and always hungry. On the first night of Chanukah, Sadie performs a generous act, and in turn receives a frying pan that cooks up sizzling, golden latkes on command. Sadie tells her brothers never to use the magic pan, but when she goes out, the mischievous boys can't resist.
They can remember the words to start the pan cooking . . . but what happens when they can't remember the words to make it stop?
This humorous tale of generosity and greed is accompanied by bright, cheerful illustrations depicting a traditional Russian village. Includes a recipe for Sadie's latkes.
