The Lovereading4Kids comment

Shortlisted for the Guardian Children’s Fiction Prize 2009

In Once, Morris Gleitzman created a brilliant and unusual way of telling the story of how two children survived in Nazi Germany. In the sequel Then, Felix and Zelda continue on their journey to safety. Felix, who tells the story in a simple, first person narrative, knows they need new parents if they are to survive but how will they know who to trust and will anyone be willing to risk their own lives to take them in? Felix and Zelda do find kindness and love in a world that is filled with fear and brutality. Morris Gleitzman has a rare ability to inject humour appropriately into such difficult subject matter making Then a remarkable book for all ages.

This is the sequel to Gleitzman's acclaimed Once.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
