The Lovereading4Kids comment
An extraordinarily powerful and poignant novel about people, about caring and about life itself. Utterly compelling as a great story should be and touches a nerve in more ways than one. Other titles by Jerry Spinelli include Love, Stargirl, Stargirl, and Eggs.
A Message From The Author:
In one of my earliest memories, I am sitting on the floor staring at a picture in a book. The picture shows a heap of bodies. I turn the page this way and that, seeking a proper orientation. I am bewildered. In my short life there is no reference point for what I see.
Then I came to see that I had every right presume. Because I cared. And had I not been telling young writers for years: “Write what you care about?”
How could I not write this book?
Jerry Spinelli, 2003
Milkweed by Jerry Spinelli
This is the true story of Jews and Gypsies in Warsaw during the Nazi occupation.But it is also the story of a street orphan who survives on quick thinking schemes to find food, who believes in bread, mothers and angels. A tragic but beautiful account through the eyes of the innocent, about the Holocaust.
‘A spare and beautifully written book...There is not a false note in it’ Guardian
‘This is a remarkable book - a great story that is funny and moving, but at the same time, quite harrowing’ The Bookseller
