Honest and captivating and short and sweet. I enjoyed this book. Would only have wanted the end to be more concise.
It is a wonderful book from a 9 year old German boy who seems oblivious to what is happening and questions some the the happenings that time in a very innocent perspective. It is true that not everyone knew especially kids at that time what was going on and it is a great start to knowing more about world war 2 and read more serious books later on about the subject. The narration is excellent and overall an amazing experience. Love it.

I listened to this audio book in one sitting after my grandson (age 11) had been given it to read at school and was very distressed by it.
I grew up in Germany post WWll, with my father being in the British Army and occupying there, wives and families were accommodated there too. My father had been one of the original troops who liberated Bergen-Belsen, and at age 8, I overheard his distress and anger, and observed his out-of-character anger towards the German population at the time. So this book was a poignant reminder of my own loss of innocence at that dreadful time in history.
Absolutely loved this voice! The best I have heard so far. The story was wonderful and short enough to listen in one day.
