Reviews

A powerful and beautiful book... Deals with one of the darkest chapters of history in a sensitive way as he experiences both human cruelty and kindness along the way... A deeply moving contribution to Holocaust literature for children, in which the world is seen through a very unusual pair of eyes. Otto is an endearing character that children (and adults) will warm to. -Outside In Maurice Sendak, a friend of Ungerer's, thought him the most original children's book writer of his time. -Sunday Telegraph So strong and graphically interesting...
