Description

Reader's Reviews

1 My teacher, Mrs Cowan, at Roman Hill Middle School read this book to my class, 6TK, I found it very emotional and so did lots of others. We asked questions to one another about this fantastic story and I am looking forward to doing some more work on it. At the age of 11, I can't even start to imagine what it would be like living in England or Germany at the time of world war II.

It is very, very sad, because of its setting of Germany in World War II.
