Read full description of the books When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit:My teacher read this to our class when I was about 10 and the name stuck with me along with a memory of waiting impatiently for the next installment each day. Finally when trying to think of a different book to read to my own kids I asked a bookseller if they knew a book of that name (not having a clue who had written it).
My two boys were absolutely riveted although rather bemused when I sobbed through the more emotional bits (nine and seven year old boys may be slightly lacking in soul!) It is beautifully written. On the whole it presents a positive view of the family's refugee experience, as would be expected from an adventurous child's view, despite the intrusion of nazism and its associated horrors into their lives. The edition we have has all sorts of facts about the war and rationing, etc at the end which really helped to bring things alive for my boys.
If you have children - read it to them, if you don't enjoy it yourself!
Read information about the authorFrom http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Judith_Kerr :
Judith Kerr is a German-born British writer and illustrator who has created both enduring picture books such as the Mog series and The Tiger Who Came To Tea and acclaimed novels for older children such as the autobiographical When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit which give a child's-eye view of the Second World War.
Kerr was born in Berlin but left Germany with her parents and her brother, Michael Kerr, in 1933, soon after the Nazis first came to power. They were forced to leave as her father, noted drama critic, journalist and screenwriter Alfred Kerr, had openly criticised the Nazis. His books were burned by the Nazis shortly after the family fled Germany. They travelled first to Switzerland and then on into France, before finally settling in Britain, where she has lived ever since. She subsequently became a naturalised British citizen.
