Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wonderful story! Although this is a children's book, as an adult, I loved it! It takes place pre-world war two but it is very relavent with the current issues of refugees, immigrants and racism in the world. A great read for children (and adults) to learn empathy and compassion.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from What A Story, What A Journey Imagine you live in Germany as a Jew, Two weeks before Adolf Hitler gets elected. You get a phone call From a police officer, who tells you that if Hitler gets elected you may have your passport taken away, by the government and you may want to leave Germany. the only reason why the father in this story gets a phone call from the police officer is because the father is a writer, And police officer tells him that he read some of his books, and enjoyed reading his books. So after phone call the father goes to Prague for a few days ( Not sure why ) Then meets the Family about a week later in Switzerland. While in Switzerland The family, mother, son Max, and daughter Anna live in a Inn just outside Zurich. At one point in the story a German family staying at the inn on vacation would not allow their children to play with their children, because they are Jewish. unfortunately the father can not find work in Switzerland. This is due to the fact that the Swiss are afraid of upsetting the Germans if they hire him. The family moves again, this time to Paris France. After living in France for roughly two years, The father writes a movie script which get accepted by a Hungarian film maker living in London. Here is where story goes from very good, to just good. After getting in cab in London, A cousin of the the mother living in England, gives the cab driver the address of a hotel, to take them to. and the story ends there. I would like to hear what their life in London was like. That was with out question a disappointment. This book is very much worth reading, in spite of this. especially for young kids 10-15 years old. Please note, when I wrote this review I did not know there was a sequel to this book. In this case disregard what I said about the ending of this book.
