Product Description

Product Description

For eleven-year-old Peter Andersen and his twin sister Elise, living in the city of Helsingor, Denmark during World War 2 means German soldiers in the streets, German patrol boats in the harbor, and German fighter planes in the sky. Everyone is nervous, especially their Jewish friend Henrik and his parents. Of course, before the invasion, no one in Denmark cared whether a person was Jewish. But now the Nazis are secretly rounding up all of the Jews who live in Denmark and sending them to prison camps in Germany. Suddenly, Henrik and his family must escape! Sweden offers the only place of refuge, but with soldiers lurking the streets and Nazi boats patrolling the sea, only a miracle can get the Jews to safety!

Format: Paperback
My children and I very much enjoyed all 8 books in this series. Although the escapades that Peter, his sister Elise, and friend Henrik get themselves into are far-fetched, my children very much enjoyed these books and did not want me to put them down until we'd finished reading 'just the next chapter.' I was pleased with the historical references and the epilogue that would relate the book to the actual historical background that it was based upon. I chose the books, originally, because of the author's dedication to remembering his Danish heritage, which we also share in, and for its sound Christian ideals.

My 11-year old son is a WWII nut and absolutely LOVES this series. Each time he receives one of the books, he stays up late until the whole thing is read as he cannot put them down. He highly recommends them.
