The first part in Katarina "Katitzi" Taikon's semi-autobiographical series about a young Romani girl's youth in 1940's Sweden. We are introduced to Katitzi's gypsy family as she is returned to them from an orphanage and we learn about the Romani life as well as the prejudice against the Romani people at the same time as Katitzi does. Because she is so young - about nine - her character can tell us about events in an innocent voice which makes an older reader understand far more about what's really going on, since the young voice can openly point out political and social flaws. The book is written for children - to promote cross-cultural understanding - but is equally apt for adults as it reveals, as Johan Taikon says, "the prejudices of educated people." ( )
