The traditional Christmas meal in Prague isn't turkey or ham, but a
special kind of Christmas fish. On Christmas Eve, Tom chooses his
live fish at the market, and calls it Peppo. He carefully carries
it home, through the streets of Prague's old town, in a big bag of
water. Tom loves his new pet, but what fate awaits Peppo as the
Christmas meal draws near? This charming, child-friendly story
presents one culture's Christmas traditions in fascinating detail.
At its core is a heartwarming tale of a boy and his grandpa, as
they both learn about doing the right thing. Marit Tornqvist's
accomplished artwork vividly brings Tom and Peppo's story, and the
beautiful city of Prague, to life.
