Tzipie Wolner

Yosef Chaim’s Treasure

Shira Yehudit Djalilmand

One of the best things about having an uncle living abroad is that we get great presents. My uncle always sends us something unusual, things we can’t get here in Israel. Once he sent me a really cool Game Boy, once a bright-pink monster that giggled, and all kinds of fun stuff. So this year when the package arrived for my birthday, I couldn’t wait to see what weird and wonderful present Uncle Nachum had sent me.

 

Button Fear
