Dreadful, especially the illustrations. ( )
  Sullywriter | Apr 3, 2013 |
Although our general knowledge of the setting and the story behind this book is deeply disturbing, the heart of this award winning book is about love, survival, hope and freedom. It is about celebration, about parties and liberation. A small group of women in Belsen concentration camp get together to make small soft toys for their children as they wait for the English and American solidiers to release them from their hell. The illustrations are soft yet colourful watercolours. The faces of the characters are happy in anticipation of what is to come and yet you know these are people of the holocaust, by their frail frames and shorne hair. Review by Fiona

Very good story- but images could be a little confusing or scary to young children. About life in concentration camp for women and children. ( )
