Customer Review

on 25 February 2013
Here is a book review written by a few pupils in my class. It is all their own work and expresses their own opinions about a book that I read aloud to the class as a serial while studying World War II. As a teacher I feel that the book has added depth to the children's knowledge and I will definitely choose to use it again with a different class.

Once is a great novel. It's a gripping tale based on real life events and fact. The book is very emotional and not for the faint hearted. I highly recommend this book for any child age ten and above. The story is well written and gives you hope in the darkest of times.

Once is about a ten year old boy called Felix who has been living in an orphanage for almost four years. He spends most of his time thinking about his Jewish book-selling parents. Then in his hot, lumpy soup one day he finds a whole carrot - this carrot means a lot to him because he believes it's a sign from his parents. So he finds the need to go and look for them.

Felix is a naïve, hopeful boy. Throughout the course of the story he becomes more realistic. There's four books in the
Series - Once, Then, After, Now. As `Once' is a great book, I think all the other books will be amazing.
