by Morris Gleitzman
Felix likes to make up and tell stories in the Catholic orphanage where his Jewish parents have placed him. But when the Nazis start to burn books, he’s worried for his parents who are booksellers, so he decides to run away and find them.
Felix begins his long journey, meeting unlikely companions along the way and trying to make up his stories to explain the horrors they encounter.
This is the most beautiful, poignant book that might well have you shed a tear in both laughter and sadness.
