Every morning Kati is woken by the clatter of Grandma's spatula and pan and every night she goes to bed wishing for her mother. Like the canal that flows past her door, Kati's life has a gentle rhythm. But beneath the peaceful surface runs an undercurrent of mystery. Why has Mother stayed away for so long and where is the father Kati has never known' These questions take Kati on an unforgettable journey from the old fashioned house on the canal to a bungalow by the sea and an apartment in the big city.
This story is a wonderful way to introduce children to a different culture...
