Peppe the Lamplighter BSW1234

US$19.95

Elisa Bartone's Caldecott Honor-winning book gives children a glimpse into American history and the immigrant experience. This is the story of Peppe, who becomes a lamplighter to help support his immigrant family in turn-of-the-century New York City, despite his papa's disapproval. Peppe's family is very poor, and though he is just a boy he needs to find work. Being a lamplighter is not the job his father had dreamed of for Peppe, but when Peppe's job helps save his little sister, he earns the respect of his entire family.

很久以前,在还没有电的时候,纽约街头的路灯还要靠人工去点燃,佩佩就住在桑树街上的一个廉价公寓里。他家里穷,所以,尽管他只是个孩子,也得去找活干。但一份点灯人的工作并不符合佩佩父亲对他的期望——“难道我来美国,就是为了让我儿子去点路灯吗?”他愤怒地说道……直到一天晚上,点路灯变成了“*好的工作”。埃莎莉·巴托尼讲述了一个动人的故事,特德·卢因写实的水彩画作将人物刻画得细致入微,文与图完美融合,为读者奉上了一部细腻、温暖、充满希望的作品。
