Review:

“A moving and important novel.” John Boyne, bestselling author of ‘The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas’

“…a decent, brave and likeable heroine who is caught by accident in harsh political affairs. NUMBER THE STARS is a simple, but effective tale.’ – Times Educational Supplement

From the Back Cover:

"How brave are you little Annemarie?"

It is 1943 and for ten-year-old Annemarie Johansen life in Copenhagen is a complicated mix of home and school life, food shortages and the constant presence of Nazi soldiers. She knows about bravery from the stories of the dragon-slaying knights that she reads to her younger sister. But Anniemarie's best frien Ellen is a Jew. As the German troops begin their campaign to eradicate all the Jews of Denmark, Annemarie is called upon for courage and a very real-life feat of bravery.

“…a decent, brave and likeable heroine who is caught by accident in harsh political affairs. 'Number the Stars' is a simple, but effective tale.”
