My teacher read this to our class when I was about 10 and the name stuck with me along with a memory of waiting impatiently for the next installment each day Finally when trying to think of a different book to read to my own kids I asked a bookseller if they knew a book of that name not having a clue who had written it My two boys were absolutely riveted although rather bemused when I sobbed through theemotional bits nine and seven year old boys may be slightly lacking in soul It is beautifully written On the whole it presents a positive view of the family s refugee experience, as would be expected from an adventurous child s view, despite the intrusion of nazism and its associated horrors into their lives The edition we have has all sorts of fac Thurs May 23rd, 2019This is one of my all time favourite books from my childhood I borrowed it countless times from the library as a child and remember being ecstatic when Santa surprised me one year with my very own copy It s just been announced this morning that the author Judith Kerr died yesterday after a short illness I will forever hold her and her brilliant books in a special place in my heart RIP Judith Thank you so much for your wonderful stories I found this wonderful BBC documentary on YouTube about Judith s life called Hitler, the Tiger and Me It firmly establishes my long held belief that only a beautiful soul could have written the books that Judith wrote You can watch the documentary on YouTube by clicking here I read this as a buddy read with Goodreads friend Hilary, for the first time it wasn t her first time I m so grateful she told me how much she loved the book when she was a child and finally inspired me to get it off my to read shelf It was a great book to buddy read There was so much to discuss and it was so much fun We were flexible each day with how many chapters we read and at some point we started reading our chapters at the exact same time, 8 time zones apart That made the reading experience particularly enjoyable for me I loved the book and am so glad that I ve read it I want to go on and read the next two books It would have been a huge loss even if I had never realized it if I d never gotten to this book It s an excellent book There are lovely illustrations, one each, on the title page and at the st
