The greatest gift of an author is that their work should stay with the reader forever. This story will.
It must be reprinted if only because everyone has someone they cannot bear to lose.
I recommend this book to everyone who still has some warmth left in their modern souls.
They have to defend their and their friends freedom and lives. It is a story about bravery, friendship etc., just brilliantly written. Once you read this, you will be wondering why paople make such a huge hype about Harry Potter.
It is a book ful of morals and lessons. They are not slapped into the readers face or overexplained but they are there and an innocent child can relate to them.
The lesson of the book is to do the right thing always, no matter the risk and several more lessons besides. I have yet to read the first 2 chapters and not cry.
It is the perfect childrens book.
Anyhow, the story had certainly not lost it's magic for me. The story grips you from the fist page with the most hard wrenching, sad and moving start you can imagine. This does not lend itself well to reading aloud - I was in tears by the end of chapter one and choking on the words. Luckily the sadness is soon expelled by a new cheerful beginning for the hero of the story, Tvebak (I'm not sure how this is translated in the english version, but in Danish it means "rusk" or "crust of bread") and his brother, Jonathan.
The story is about hope and the fight for freedom - and about the strong bond between brother.
You HAVE to let your child read this book. They will love it - boys and girls alike.
The book is a 10 stars for me but I have to say that the translation to English is not brilliant. It is clear that this is translated by a Scandinavian - and one not using English on a daily basis. My son who is so young picked up the strangeness of the translation and I found it distracting as well. It's a shame as the language in the original is so simple and beautiful

Without doubt one of the best children's books ever written. I can't believe Pippi Longstocking has gained precedence over this story from Astrid Lindgren. Outstanding.Published 8 months ago by Kate Thornton
