  • This is so emotional but in a fantastic way. One can re-read it 100 times and never get bored because Morris Gleitzman has made the book so interesting, yet exciting. All the books in the trilogy are amazing, but Once is somehow the best. I recommend this book to all readers.

    I loved this book. It’s a slice of genius the whole series, I just reccomend this book. It has been sad at times and happy. Furthermore I would like to congratulate Gleiztman for producing something like this that has so much meaning. I know I’m not Jewish and I don’t have family that were in the Holocaust but I felt I was their with Zelda, Felix, Genia, Krol and so many others. This book is just… truly amazing.
