Publisher's Summary

Esme tells us about the night she and her mother became "egg vigilantes" against an illegally parked car; her freewheeling first school, where kids sat on sofas instead of at desks and could choose disco dancing instead of math; her dangerous neighborhood, which her father made to seem friendly and wondrous; the Passover dinner when she stole a matzoh right out from under a rabbi; the awe-inspiring, life-threatening Chicago snowstorms; and lessons about love from tea-reading gypsies and Popeye cartoons. In stories that perfectly evoke the perspective of her 10-year-old self, author Esme Raji Codell demonstrates her gift for making the ordinary extraordinary, and the unusual familiar. Sing a Song of Tuna Fish is a memoir of a Chicago childhood, a tribute to the art of attention, and most of all, a joyful listening experience for kids and families.
