About this deal

Anna's father foresees that this new leader is not good for the country, so he decides to take his family and leave. Have read numerous books regarding WWII but this was from a different angle again and challenges me to understand how hard it is when people are displaced due to war and that they can end up not belonging anywhere.

She is also the author and illustrator of numerous picture books, including The Tiger Who Came to Tea, which was first published in 1968 and has since sold more than one million copies worldwide. An omnibus edition of Judith Kerr’s internationally acclaimed trilogy, When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit, Bombs on Aunt Dainty and A Small Person Far Away, we see the world through Anna’s eyes as she grows up – from her much loved family to Hitler’s holocaust. The story is told from the perspective of Anna, the main character, through a series of very funny events, whether it's escaping on the midnight train to Switzerland, or learning French from scratch. The children hear that their father has sought refuge in Prague, Austria, along with Anna's older brother Max.Remarkables REMARKABLES Intriguing, stunning, or otherwise remarkable books These include fine editions, foreign publications exceptional for their interest or production, special editions and some first-rate books from very small publishers.

The book has a light hearted and funny approach but alongside an enjoyable story, children will learn about the tragedies of the Second World War. This book is written beautifully and I would recommend any parent to let their child read this book.This book is about a girl named Anna, who lives in Berlin at the start of the story, just before the German election takes place. Through newspapers and the radio they hear that Hitler’s party has won several votes of confidence, and is now more powerful than ever before. Angefangen von der unbesorgten 9-jährigen Anna, die mit ihrer Familie von Berlin in die Schweiz geht. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys historical fiction, especially The Book Thief since I personally enjoyed this book a lot more than that one.
