Product Description:

Set in pre-World War I Czechoslovakia, this charming book tells the story of a twelve-year-old girl named Philomena. It has long been the custom for girls in Philomena's village to go to the city to work as housemaids before coming home to be married. Philomena's aunt had gone to the city years ago, but she never returned. On her deathbed, Babushka (Philomena's grandmother) instructs Philomena to go to Prague and find her rich aunt, and perform service in her household. So Philomena sets out on her journey, making friends, gaining experience, and encountering one adventure after another with guidance from her Babushka in Heaven. Charcoal illustrations throughout the story portray the characters and unique setting of Eastern Europe. By Kate Seredy. 96 pgs, pb. ~ Lisa
