" An accessible, unique perspective on the Holocaust and World War II based upon actual events. Includes an afterword explaining the historical context. " said.

" WWII from the perspective of a young Jewish boy in Budapest. Because of his limited perspective as a kid it lacks much detail, but its still interesting to get the child's perspective on a complicated situation. " said.

" I think my favorite part about this children's graphic novel was the pictures of Peter at the end, both his childhood picture and his picture with his family in 2015. I love being able to put faces to the real life people these stories are based off of. What a terrifying time to be alive, but I'm always amazed at the strength and will of these people to push through and live. Incredibly strong people. The Jews of the past and present have so much of my respect. " said.

"A Cambridge classmate of mine mentioned she had written & illustrated a few children's books, so I of course immediately inquired about them. After reading for free the first few pages, I was hooked and had to purchase it. (Amazon usually allows sample pages to read before buying.)

It's a serious story about a Jewish boy growing up in Hungary during WWII and constantly avoiding being captured by the Nazis. Helen does a great job at recreating what it was like for a child at that time without being too scary, while also making the reader feel an appropriate amount of awe at the reality of such an event. The fact that it's written like a graphic novel also lightens the feel of the story - putting the child who reads it in the mindset of reading a comic book.I

Adults would appreciate this too. It's a page-turner, and it pulls at the heartstrings. Though it may cause some mild distress in the more sensitive child, there are no directly spoken of tragedies. It's just a boy's perspective of him and his family being forced from one place to the next and back home again. The best part about the whole story is how so many people (family, neighbors, strangers, and even some "enemies") unite and show kindness to each other.

Oh, and it's a true story. The back of the book gives background to the story and there's pictures of Peter and his family, both then and now.
