Summary
A shopkeeper who grumbles about the noise of Purim grakkers uses one to chase away a mean boy who tries to steal the special grakker Ben bought for his sister, Esther
Summary
Young Esther has earned a special gragger (whirling noisemaker) by delivering charitable gifts on Purim, a Jewish holiday based on the story of Queen Esther. Now she is ready to carry her gragger in the Purim parade! Like the legendary Queen, Esther displays courage and wit when an older bully tries to steal her gragger. Add a toyshop and a lively cast of characters, and there is learning and fun to be had for all!
