Item Description...
Overview
Czechoslovakia early 1900s It has long been the custom for every 12-year-old girl from Philomena's village to go to the city to do "service" as housemaids-before coming home to be married. But Philomena's aunt had gone and never returned. On her deathbed, Babushka instructs her little granddaughter to go to Prague and find her aunt, who must surely be rich now, and do "service" in her household. With the confidence that Babushka is still watching over her from heaven, Philomena travels to Prague, the "city of a hundred spires." Once there, she bounces from one adventure into another as doors open and close and unconventional guidance-from Babushka?-moves her in ever new directions. Though Philomena may grow slightly impatient with Babushka's methods, she is steadily gaining experience, friends-and pets!-until unexpectedly she is able to accomplish her goal. Kate Seredy, renowned author and artist, brings to life both the characters and their setting of pre-World War I Czechoslovakia in this beautifully illustrated story of irrepressible Philomena.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
More wonderful Seredy  May 26, 2001
My mother found a copy of this book at a library book sale and after growing up with The Good Master, The Singing Tree and The White Stag, this is another wonderful Kate Seredy book! It's all about a young girl in Poland that must leave her village and go to the big city to earn money for her family. She relies completely on the spirit of her grandmother to lead her to make the right decisions, some of which are very unusual but lead to the right ending for the book. If you can find it, it's another great Seredy to add to your collection.
