Miriam Halahmy has written a warm and touching story of friendship, courage and loyalty. A lovely and moving book. Highly recommended for 10+. * The Historical Novel Society *
Inspired by real events during the Second World War, this is a touching tale of courage, resourcefulness and camaraderie in desperate times. * Junior News & Mail *
This is a sympathetic and moving story of a side of war that doesn't receive much attention and fills a gap in children's war literature. * Childtastic Books *
This book is sure to be enjoyed by animal-lovers, history enthusiasts and fans of children outsmarting the grown-ups. * The Library Girl and Book Boy *
A classic den-in-the-woods adventure for age nine to 12 and a subtle fable about asylum seekers * The Jewish Chronicle *
A tautly written and compelling novel, it is a stirring defence of animal welfare * The Lady Magazine *
It's a story that needed to be told - what happened to animals before and during the war is glossed over. By telling the story in such a compassionate manner, from the viewpoint of children, the author has enlightened us and given us a new understanding * Parents in Touch *
A winning formula of war, animals and friendship * Inis Magazine *
