Overview

Sing a Song of Tuna Fish: Hard-to-Swallow Stories from Fifth Grade by Esmé Raji Codell

Like every fifth grader, Esm Raji Codell spent her days within the small world of school, neighborhood, and family. But this small world provides rich material for the often hilarious, always engrossing stories and vignettes in this book. Esm tells us about: the night she and her mother became "egg vigilantes" against an illegally parked car; her freewheeling first school, where kids could choose disco dancing instead of math; her dangerous neighborhood, which her father made 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.

Not only for 'fifth-graders' as they are told by, but for all children who love creative stories.

Hi! My name is Anna Kinsley. I'm 15, and (I don't mean to brag) am an awesome reader. So even though this book was a little easy, it really made me laugh, cause it is not about a song or tuna fish! I think anyone who wants a laugh should read it. It was hysterical, and one of the best books I ever read. I do suggest that you should be above 12 to read the story. Sorry youngsters!!!!! Love, Anna K.
