Daniel loves celebrating Hanukkah.  This year he has made some special gifts for his family.  But his mother is also trying something different this year.  Instead of the potato latkes that the family loves, his mother is experimenting with other vegetables.  The first day of Hanukkah has her serving zucchini latkes!  Can you imagine.  But that isn't the only thing different this year.  A woman has moved in down the hall and she owns a big dog.  Daniel is terrified of dogs.  He was bitten by one last year.  Now he has to pass the apartment to get home.  What do dogs and zucchini latkes have to do with each other?  Find out in The Very Best Hanukkah Gift.
