One of my favorite books of all time. This author also wrote Number the Stars, another good book for young readers.

Inspired by a period of several weeks in 1943, when the people of Denmark smuggled nearly 7,000 Jews out of the country, this historical novel is a sensitive and appropriate introduction to the Holocaust for young readers. Ages 9 and up.
