Jerusalem-on-Sea

Daniela Carmi
AGE: 5-8

Erica is a young, fun nanny, who loves playing with Gidi and his sister Talia. And she’s a computer whizz! She can even create a virus to pour water on the sun-baked city of Jerusalem. And that makes everyone very happy, especially the children!
One Saturday morning, Erica, the kids and the little virus go for a stroll through the streets of the city. And today more than ever, Jerusalem is a magical place where anything can happen. The streets are all under water and people are sailing about in funny boats. Gidi and Talia find a suitcase, climb in and sail from place to place—they pass the Monastery of the Cross and sail to Terra Sancta College, the Western Wall, the Al Aqsa Mosque and the colorful Mahaneh Yehuda market.
Meanwhile, they reach the ancient walls of the Old City, where the Eastern section of Jerusalem starts, and Gidi throws the remote control for the little virus to a Palestinian boy, so that he can pour water there too. Then the flowing water sweeps away all barriers and people from both sides of the city can sail wherever they want ‒ it’s all one big lake!
Later, on the way home, Gidi wonders what Mom and Dad will say. And how will he explain that the remote control for the TV is gone?
