My 9 year old son and I really loved it. We live in France and I am always trying to find good books in English to get my son interested in his mother tongue. This book really caught his attention! It tells the atrocious historically accurate tale of the life a young Jewish boy living in Poland during the time of the Holocaust. The story is really tough, but it is written in a way that teaches, yet doesn't traumatise the child reading the book.
I will buy more of Morris Gleitman's books!

A harrowing look at WW2 Poland through the eyes of a child 6 avril 2010
Par Lawral Wornek - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Once there was a boy named Felix who lived at an orphanage in Poland, only he wasn't an orphan. Almost four years ago Felix's secret alive parents left him with Mother Minka, at the orphanage, so they could travel and find out why their bookstore had to close.

Once Nazis came to the orphanage and burned all the Jewish books in the library. Then Felix knew the answer to his parents' problem. See, Felix not only has secret alive parents, he's also secretly Jewish. Maybe if his parents sold more books that the Nazis liked, their bookstore wouldn't have to close.

Armed with this revelation, Felix leaves the orphanage to find his parents. Instead of them helping and protecting him, maybe Felix can save them, just this Once.

Doesn't the whole premise of this book stress you out? It stressed me out. For a book of 163 pages* I had to put it down more than a couple of times because I was just too nervous for Felix. He was so young when his parents left him at the orphanage. This is, presumably, why they didn't tell him why they were really leaving him in the hands of a bunch of nuns, and the nuns certainly didn't tell him either. How could they? How could they explain that to 6 year old Felix when he entered the orphanage? Besides, if Felix didn't pray to God, Jesus, the Virgin Mary, the Pope and Adolf Hitler like the rest of the orphans, he'd stand out.

It was heartbreaking to watch Felix do things like return to his family's home in what used to be a Jewish neighborhood, try to flag down a truckload of soldiers when he needs help, or pray to Adolf Hitler to keep him safe, as he's been taught to do. He really has no idea what is going on in Poland and the rest of Europe. He has no idea that at ten years old he is a hunted man. His realization that it is not Jewish books that the Nazis hate, but Jews themselves, is painfully slow, and yet I never once doubted the authenticity of Felix's thought processes and take on the situation around him. As Felix's naivety lessens to make room for the huge weight of his new knowledge, it is sometimes hard to believe that he is only ten, or even that he is the same boy that I met at the beginning of the book. This is not to say that Felix's voice lost any of its authenticity, he is just aged so much by what he has to go through.

Even given the subject matter, and the violence does get a bit graphic by the end, this is a beautiful book. The stories that Felix makes up for himself and others to get them through the really hard times, the people that help Felix along the way, and the hope and compassion that Felix just never loses make this an (almost) uplifting story. The ending is not horrific or magically happy. The sequel, Then, is available in the UK and will hopefully be available in the US soon.

A heartwrenching story 3 mai 2010
Par J.Prather - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
What an amazing book. Hearing the story of the holocaust told in the voice of a 10 year old child is heart breaking. Felix is a boy of amazing imagination and he wears his imaginative story telling ability like a suit of armour that protects him from the atrocities that he sees around him. He makes up stories about why his parents would have left him at a Catholic orphanage, about why a nazi soldier would shoot at him, and why the nazis would hate the jewish people. His attempts to make sense of something that doesn't make sense is a chilling reminder of all the innocent children who lost their lives. Watching Felix lose his innocence and realize the horrible truth about what probably happened to his parents will bring tears to your eyes. The strength of this book is Felix's narrative voice. He is so incredibly believable that it's somewhat surprising to read in the author's note that Felix wasn't a real boy. The most startling thing is that through it all, Felix is steadfast in his belief in good - that he has something good in his life and has all along. This is an inspiring read that I believe would be perfect for young middle schoolers. It would be a great way to introduce this time period to 5th or 6th graders. Just as compelling and well written as The Boy Who Dared (geared toward a bit older audience).

Capture the kids in your class with this book 15 mars 2007
Par Mrs. Jennifer Naylor - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
As a teacher who loves to read to the class I have been bowled over by the response to this book by the children in my class. It is a funny and sad tale all in one. A young Jewish boy, Felix, leaves the orphanage in Poland where his parents have hidden him to save the families book shop. Experience tells me that Year 4 children need explanation of some of the concepts in the book, but they love it.

Worth a look if you want to talk about the impact of war and its futility.

Once by Morris Gleitzman
Audio Book Review
Narrated by Morris Gleitzman
3 hours and 8 minutes

Felix is a young orphan living in a Polish hilltop orphanage. His Jewish parents dropped him off for safe keeping and said they'd return for him. and when Nazi soldiers show up at the orphanage and burn the nuns books, Felix panics and decide to find his parents and warn them to save the books. The search for Felix's parents leads him on a perilous journey to the Warsaw ghetto.

Narrated by the author, each chapter break has a musical interlude. The story starts out a little slow as Felix is very naive and innocent. His parents owned a bookstore so Felix's mind is filled with stories that he uses to explain things he doesn't understand. Once picks up as Felix starts to figure out what is really happening around him during the war with Germany. Felix in his naiveté reminds me of the Boy in the Striped Pajamas.
There are 3 more books in the series.

The comments after were about having understood something of what it was like to live through awful times 23 novembre 2014
Par Ern - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
When I found myself having to choose between Morris Gleitzman books to teach my year seven girls this year, I was not thrilled to have to pick this one because the numbers in the class matched the number of books in the box. Another Holocaust book! I'd done 'Briar Rose' with a recalcitrant year 12 class and 'The Book Thief' with an eager year 10 class. And Gleitzman! I could not imagine how he could do justice to the truth and still be Gleitzman with his quirky irreverent characters. So I was pleasantly surprised to be as enthralled with the book (then the next and the next and the now) as my students were. The horror was there, but my students were not overwhelmed by it. The comments after were about having understood something of what it was like to live through awful times. I will teach it again.
