A Carp for Kimiko

By: Virginia Kroll / Illustrated by: Katherine Roundtree

Sometimes you need to swim against the current of tradition.

In Japan, families fly a kite in the shape of a carp for each boy in the house on Children's Day. When her family hangs little brother Yukio's kite, Kimiko desperately wants a carp kite of her own.

Kimiko's parents remind her that there is a holiday just for girls – Doll Festival Day – but this does not stop Kimiko from longing for her very own carp. Can her wish be granted without breaking tradition?

Kimiko yearns for a carp-shaped kite to fly on Children's Day, like the one little brother Yukio has, but it's not the Japanese tradition: kites are for boys. When she tries, politely, to negotiate, her parents are firm—but not unsympathetic, especially Mama. It's true, as Kimiko says, that Yukio shared in the Doll Festival by coming to Kimiko's party; Mama, sighing, says, "You remind me of the carp, Kimiko, always wanting to swim against the current," but agrees to "bend" tradition: she may unpack one of the dolls reserved for that festival. Better, once Children's Day is over, Kimiko gets a special gift: a live carp in an aquarium. Roundtree's illustrations are stolidly literal, her bright colors almost garish—an unfortunate choice for a gentle story distinguished by unusual warmth and subtlety. An upbeat but still bracing look at a culture in which children learn to accept tradition—and, like all children, to bargain within the constraints they're given.

A straightforward story that focuses on a Japanese holiday. On the fifth day of the fifth month, Children's Day is celebrated, formerly called Boy's Day. Families fly a carp windsock for each son, and Kimiko longs to have one fly in her honor along with the three for her brothers. Her mother makes the obvious comparison-her daughter is like a carp struggling against the current. Traditional ways prevail, and a colorful windsock does not fly for Kimiko. But, the morning after the holiday, she is delighted to find a live calico carp in a fishbowl by her bed. The bright, realistic illustrations are filled with the details of Japanese life, including a corner rock garden, shoe rack, and table setting. In one overzealous attempt to provide information, the author gives the Japanese words for various family members in a phonetic manner instead of in the accepted method of transcription. This will prove confusing to anyone with some knowledge of Japanese.
