9780142402245: Snow Treasure

In the bleak winter of 19 0, Nazi troops parachuted into Peter Lundstrom's tiny Norwegian village and held it captive. Nobody thought the Nazis could be defeated—until Uncle Victor told Peter how the children could fool the enemy. It was a dangerous plan. They had to slip past Nazi guards with nine million dollars in gold hidden on their sleds. It meant risking their country's treasure—and their lives. This classic story of how a group of children outwitted the Nazis and sent the treasure to America has captivated generations of readers.

About the Author:

Marie McSwigan was an award-winning author of children's books who lived in Pennsylvania.

From AudioFile:

This beautiful and thrilling story written in 1942 is set in Norway. As the Nazis move closer to the country, it is decided that something must be done to keep Norwegian gold from the enemy. Children are the only ones who can go about their daily lives without arousing suspicion. Narrator McDonough uses restraint as he retells this compelling story about REAL heros and heroines. The pace of the story and McDonough's style keep the listener on edge as the children hide gold bricks in the snowmen they are building right under the German noses. McDonough's mature and accentless voice is perfect since the story is filled with many nationalities and ages. A superb choice for older children and anyone interested in WWII lore. S.G.B.
