Product description

It’s 1933, but Anna is too busy tobogganing and playing with her favourite toy, Pink Rabbit, to listen to talk of Hitler. She hasn’t noticed that her country is changing; that it’s become too dangerous for some people to live in any more. She has no idea at all that she’s one of those people. But one day, her father disappears. Suddenly Anna and her brother are being rushed away, in frightening secrecy, from everything they know and love. They must leave their home and their school, their best-loved toys… and even Germany itself!

  • The classic tale of a family’s escape from Nazi Germany
  • By the bestselling author of The Tiger Who Came to Tea
  • Based on author Judith Kerr’s own true-life experiences
  • A vivid story of Jewish refugees escaping the Holocaust
  • Now with a special introduction by Michael Morpurgo

“The most life-enhancing book you could ever wish to read.” Michael Morpurgo

    This book was amazing! It made me want to read it numerous time. It is a story of a young girl called Anna who is forced to leave her home and everything she loves during the Hitler takeover. Really no words can describe this wonderful book by Judith Keer.

    This book is excellent. It fantastically shows the innocence of childhood in a staccato burst of humour and seriousness, happiness and sadness, everything you could want from a book. Anna is sweet and the plot is excellent, this semi-autobiographical work is just perfect.

    This book is a very interesting book. It shows the insight of a young girl, Anna, and her hard life being Jewish during the Hitler takeover. Anna is a strong brave girl and would do anything to stay with her family.

    A really memorising book that i shall never for get I felt sorry for anna but not just her this book makes you think of all the jews the nazis killed this book can also be happy at times though , if you read this book I promise you’ll never forget it

    My mentor told me to read this book. The book is very educational and can be rather sad and happy at times. The book has 246 pages and contains extra pages about information about the world war as well as the nazi party, the book also links to what I am currently learning in History so I agreed with my mentor that it will be an excellent choice.

    The book is about a girl, Anna. Anna and her family have to flee from Germany because Hitler may become Chancellor they are Jews and her father writes antinazi articles and if Hitler becomes Chancellor he will hurt then. The book explores many themes loss, gain, love, dreams. This is one of my favourite books up to date I need to start reading more Of Kerr’s books.

    P.s if you like this you would like ‘the kingdom by sea’ by Robert westall and Morris glieizman once, now, then collection.

    This is a great book. I actually met the author Judith Kerr and she signed a copy of the book for me, she was really nice. What makes this story even more impressive is the fact is a true story ! A great book, i really enjoyed reading it. Ages 11+

    This book is AMAZING!!!! One of my very most favouritest favourites. It is a sort of autobiography about Judith Kerr’s childhood in Nazi Germany, whilst her father is writing books against the Nazi’s. So they escape, hang on. Read the 3 books for the whole story. I don’t want to spoil it for you!! NOTE: 3 books (2sequels)
