This book was amazing! It made me want to read it numerous time. It is a story of a young girl called Anna who is forced to leave her home and everything she loves during the Hitler takeover. Really no words can describe this wonderful book by Judith Keer.

Amazing! Thoroughly gripping and well described i would recommend for all ages as it seems fairly appropriate. A rollercoaster ride for me! I want to read it all over again!

This book is excellent. It fantastically shows the innocence of childhood in a staccato burst of humour and seriousness, happiness and sadness, everything you could want from a book. Anna is sweet and the plot is excellent, this semi-autobiographical work is just perfect.

No words can describe this book, really does highlight the innocence of children in a regime so evil

This book is a very interesting book. It shows the insight of a young girl, Anna, and her hard life being Jewish during the Hitler takeover. Anna is a strong brave girl and would do anything to stay with her family.

My mentor told me to read this book. The book is very educational and can be rather sad and happy at times. The book has 246 pages and contains extra pages about information about the world war as well as the nazi party, the book also links to what I am currently learning in History so I agreed with my mentor that it will be an excellent choice.
The book is about a girl, Anna. Anna and her family have to flee from Germany because Hitler may become Chancellor they are Jews and her father writes antinazi articles and if Hitler becomes Chancellor he will hurt then. The book explores many themes loss, gain, love, dreams. This is one of my favourite books up to date I need to start reading more Of Kerr’s books.
P.s if you like this you would like ‘the kingdom by sea’ by Robert westall and Morris glieizman once, now, then collection.
