This sem-autobiographical classic, written by the beloved Judith Kerr, tells the story of a Jewish family escaping Germany in the days before the Second World War.


This beautiful new hardback celebrates the fifty year anniversary of an unforgettable adventure that Michael Morpurgo called "The most life-enhancing book you could ever wish to read."


Suppose your country began to change. Suppose that without your noticing, it became dangerous for some people to live in it any longer, and you found, to your surprise, that your own father was one of those people. This is what happened to Anna in 1933.


Anna was too busy with her schoolwork and tobogganing to listen to the talk of Hitler. But one day she and her brother Max are rushed out of Germany in alarming secrecy, away from everything they know. Their father is wanted by the Nazis - dead or alive. This is the start of a huge adventure, sometimes frightening, very often funny, and always, always exciting.


Judith Kerr wrote this semi-autobiographical story of her childhood flight from Germany fifty years ago, so that her own children would know where she came from, and the lengths her parents had gone to to keep her and her brother safe. It has gone on to become a beloved classic that is required reading for many children all over the world and is an unforgettable introduction to the real-life impact of the Second World War.
This commemorative hardback celebrates fifty years of this extraordinary book, its iconic author, and the eternal relevance of this compelling and momentous story.
