Editorial Review

 

Praise for Don’t Tell the Enemy / Don’t Tell the Nazis:

“…a thought-provoking and difficult book, in terms of both its content and its historical themes, and one that I cannot recommend enough. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED ****CM: Canadian Review of Materials

“Based on true events, the book masterfully paints a picture of the speed at which a community can insidiously become a cog in a terrible system. Skrypuch focuses on nuances not always captured in books about Nazis.?— Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

“The first-person account reads like a memoir; despite the historically accurate body count, it retains a sense of hope. An accessible entry in a crowded, vital field, honoring those who risked everything to save others.?— Kirkus Reviews

Praise for Making Bombs for Hitler:

“…a thought-provoking and difficult book, in terms of both its content and its historical themes, and one that I cannot recommend enough. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED **** — CM: Canadian Review of Materials

“A well-told story of persistence, lost innocence, survival, and hope.” — Kirkus Reviews

Praise for The War Below / Underground Soldier:

“A page-turning window into a complex piece of World War II history.” — Kirkus Reviews

Praise for Stolen Girl / Stolen Child:

“A gripping exploration of war-induced trauma, identity, and transformation.” — Kirkus Reviews
