The Book is set in world War II and I was recommended it By my Dad, I find stories about the war, very interesting, and love them; My Dad read this Book when he was my age (14) and loved it.
It is amazing how you can even imagine that your there, and because of the such amazing Descriptions and Laungage, it Created an amazing sense of atmosphere, so that you could imagine the scene in your own way and have your own clear idea in your head of what the Characters Look Like.
What I love about Ian Serraillier's Writing is the way that the could have happened in the War and have happened in the same sort of way maybe.
EVery Part of the book was adventurous and made me so en-grossed in the book i couldn't put it down and read it in a day! :) One of my Favourite parts of the book was the escape from the american zone in germany, into switzerland, when Edek and Jan in one double canoe, and Bonia and Ruth Sharing a single, when they had to canoe the river without been seen, but when ruth's canoe struck ashore, and american solider grabbed an ore, and wasn't expecting her to let go but she did and they escaped un-harmed.
At The end of the book there is an Afterword about the book, and how Ian Came up with the idea, this included information, such as he was a teacher at a school and the book took five long summer holidays to complete, and tells you of how the ideas came about and pictures and news about the book.
I would recommend this book to anyone and read it again many times!
