1st line/s: "On his tenth birthday, Marcus found himself on an ocean liner, headed for Shanghai."
My comments: Here's another wonderful picture book that sheds light on yet another aspect of history that I was totally unaware of. It leaves me with many questions....are there still Jewish communities in Shanghai? I'll have to research farther. This was a book celebrating history, friendship, traditions, and cultures. Wonderful!
Goodreads: Fleeing the Holocaust in Europe, Marcus moves with his family from Berlin to Shanghai. With help from his new friend Liang, Marcus sets out to build a unique sukkah in time for the harvest festival of Sukkot.
