Hed much rather live like a rock star and do whatever he wants whenever he wants to do it.Stanley gets his wish when he uncovers a tarnished, antique menorah, begins to rub the schmutz off of it, and discovers a genie named Fishel.Fishel, who looks more like a haggard old man than any genie Stanley ever heard of, grants him three wishes. Finally! Stanley will get the fame and fortune hes always wanted.But why does Fishel insist on taking Stanley back in time to grant a wish? What do people who lived in the 1930s have to do with Stanley now?In this heartwarming holiday story, Jane Breskin Zalben shows us the strength of family and what being happy is really all about.
