Book description

The story of Mika, a Jewish boy, who finds a way to survive in the Warsaw ghetto - a stunning novel for anyone who was moved by The Tattooist of Auschwitz I was twelve when the coat was made. Nathan, our tailor and dear friend, cut it for Grandfather in the first week of March 1938. It was the last week of freedom for Warsaw and for us... Even in the most difficult of lives, there is hope. When Mika's grandfather dies in the Warsaw ghetto, he inherits not only his great coat, but its treasure trove of secrets. In one remote pocket, he finds a papier mache head, a scrap of cloth... a puppet prince. And what better way to cheer the cousin who has lost her father, the little boy who is ill, the neighbours living in one cramped room, than a puppet show? Soon the whole ghetto is talking about the puppet boy - until the day when Mika is stopped by a German officer and is forced into a secret life... This is a story about survival. It is an epic journey, spanning continents and generations, from Warsaw to the gulags of Siberia, and two lives that intertwine amid the chaos of war. Because even in wartime, there is hope... The powerful story of a friendship between a Jewish boy and a German soldier and the part played in both their lives by a simple puppet. * CHOICE MAGAZINE * This story plucks at the heart strings and is well worth reading. * JEWISH NEWS * The powerful story of a friendship between a Jewish boy and a German soldier and the part played in both their lives by a simple puppet. * CHOICE MAGAZINE * This story plucks at the heart strings and is well worth reading. * JEWISH NEWS *
