A book about a little girl trying to save a fish at Christmas.A small book with lots of illustrations and an unusual storyline.

This book is fiction.I liked Lucja because she has a friend that is a fish.It interested me because Grandpa Feliks says that Lucja can not have Mr Fishy.I would recommend this book to someone because it is funny when Lucja asked why people has red noses.

I Think this was a nice book, a good story. It is a fiction book, my favorite person in this book was Lucja. It is a story about a fish that the family was supose to have for dinner and Lucja suddenly decided to keep it as a pet in a bathtub. I would recommend it to a friend because I liked it very much

I learnt lots of names of fish. I wouldn't like fish for Christmas dinner!

I like it when the fish was saved in the end and it stayed in the bathtub until April.

Grandpa Feliks bought a carp and put it in the bathtub and planned to eat it on Christmas Eve. But Lujca his grand daughter can talk to the fish and doesn't want grandpa to eat it.

The story is a bit boring but interesting.

The book was about a little girl and her grandfather having an argument over a carp she had made friends with.
The grandfather wants to eat the fish and the little girl wants to set it free.
