Reviews

"The graphic novel format helps reinforce the contrast between the dark, scary moments and the happier times." --The Horn Book

"Affecting and effective" --BCCB

"*Lizano draws people the same way that small children do: a giant oval for the head and two dots for the eyes. But his people always have complicated expressions on their faces. They never show just one emotion . . . No book can sum up all of the Holocaust, but this graphic novel seems to contain every possible human emotion. Remarkably, most of the time, it does it with an oval and two dots." --Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"A Holocaust experience told as a bedtime story? It sounds crazy, but here it works." --Booklist

"Lizano's stylized illustrations depict characters with oversize heads, reminiscent of "Peanuts" comics, giving this difficult subject an age-appropriate touch . . . Pair this poignant graphic novel with Lois Lowry's Number the Stars." --School Library Journal
