It’s so compelling and emotional. Such a deep story told so simply. I was gripped and by the end I was in tears. I definitely suggest reading this book!

‘The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas’ is written by John Boyne.
It is about a boy called Bruno who is moved from his perfect house in Berlin to Auschwitz. He has no one to play with until he finds a boy called Shmeul who is a Jew. Of course Bruno doesn’t know this. They become best friends as time goes on and eventually Shmeul asks Bruno to go under the fence to help him find his Father. Bruno doesn’t think anything unusual of it and goes under the fence….........................

touching and moving story, more for older readers. use insight to discover more about the war and people. my favrouite charecter was either shmuel (the jewish freind of brunos on the other side of the fence) or bruno himself as they are the best of freinds. its got a good moral of don’t mess with things that don’t concern you
