Matilda Bookshop Review

This is the story of Liesl, a proud German girl from East Prussia, fleeing from the invading Russian army. She has made a promise to her mother to look after her two younger siblings and keep them safe. This beautifully told tale describes the things the children need to do to survive - often things they never would have dreamed of doing before the war. "Sometimes it's good to be wild. Sometimes you have to be wild." Katrina Nannestad has written a story reminiscent of the books I used to read as a child. It is beautifully told and I would highly recommend it. Jo
