Pinky Bloom and the Case of the Magical Menorah
From the Series Pinky Bloom
Pinky Bloom, Brooklyn’s greatest kid detective, takes on a new case just in time for Hanukkah. When an extremely valuable ancient Israeli coin is stolen from her synagogue, Pinky sets out to find the thief. But other strange events keep distracting her. Could they be connected to the supposedly magical menorah that her neighbor has left in her family’s care? Only Pinky can get to the bottom of this—with a little help from her annoying little brother.
