Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

It's too dangerous to stay any longer--the war is coming closer. Viktor, little Marina, and Mama must pack what they can carry and flee their home. As they trudge beside the other refugees, Viktor worries about what lies ahead, and what he's left behind--his room, his books, the fish Marina loves so much. Even worse, his papa is off fighting with the Liberation Army and doesn't know they've left home. How will Papa ever find them now?

Inspired by real events, master storyteller Eve Bunting recounts the harrowing yet hopeful story of a family, a war--and a dazzling discovery.

Review:

"Inspired by true events in the Balkans, this tale centers on two goldfish that survive in a wartorn village and become a symbol of hope. PW said, 'Eerie autumnal oil paintings provide the emotional backdrop for a tale of a family forced into exile.' Ages 6-9." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
