Description:

The dramatic story of neighbors in a small Danish fishing village who, during the Holocaust, shelter a Jewish family waiting to be ferried to safety in Sweden. It is 1943 in Nazi-occupied Denmark. Anett and her parents are hiding a Jewish woman and her son, Carl, in their cellar until a fishing boat can take them across the sound to neutral Sweden. The soldiers patrolling their street are growing suspicious, so Carl and his mama must make their way to the harbor despite a cloudy sky with no moon to guide them. Worried about their safety, Anett devises a clever and unusual plan for their safe passage to the harbor.

Quotes:

Urgent and refreshingly unsentimental., Publishers Weekly

The direct simplicity of the story's telling serves well as an introduction for younger children to the Holocaust. This uncomplicated narrative of Danish resistance will facilitate teaching and discussion of a difficult yet necessary subject., Kirkus

Starred review. Both author and illustrator do an excellent job of bringing both the horror and humanity of this story to a level younger children can understand, and there is much of both... An unusual and strong addition to Holocaust literature., Booklist
