Hitler's Canary

Corgi Yearling Books, 2006 - 304 Seiten
Based on a true story, this is a gripping, yet humorous account of a daring rescue in occupied Denmark.
April 1940: German troops are pouring onto the streets of Denmark. 12-year-old Bamse and his daring friend Anton can't resist playing practical jokes on the invading soldiers. When it becomes clear to the people of Denmark that the trouble isn't going to pass them by, they decide to take action and Bamse and his eccentric family are about to take part in one of history's most dramatic rescues -- smuggling Denmark's Jewish population across the water to Sweden, and safety.
