Publisher's Summary

After the Nazis took my parents, I was scared. After they killed my best friend, I was angry. After I joined the partisans and helped defeat the Nazis, I was hopeful. Soon, I said, we'll be safe. I was wrong.

Critic Reviews

"One of the reasons this humane and carefully crafted book is so readable is that the author celebrates ordinariness and childishness even as he chronicles terrible cruelty. But prepare for shock and tears." ( The Sunday Times)

Incredible

I haven't read a Felix book since I was 13 because I thought his story was well and truly over. I was delighted to discover there were 2 more books to read. This took me back to my childhood, made me cry, made me laugh, and made me remember how profound an effect Morris Gleitzman had on me growing up.

The post-war adventure

Set in post-war Poland in 1946, this book has a great historic setting. Because this is one of the only books with Jewish characters set in post-war Europe, it seams silly not to give this book a high rating. The author has used high historic knowledge to create this book. Because of some of the themes used in the book we recommend that readers aged 9 - 13 have their parents tell them a bit about the horrors of the Holocaust first.
