Partly autobiographical, these are first and second books in the internationally acclaimed trilogy by Judith Kerr, telling the unforgettable story of a Jewish family fleeing from Germany at the start of the Second World War. Michael Morpurgo called When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit: "The most life-enhancing book you could ever wish to read." This special bind-up, celebrating the fortieth anniversary of When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit ,is based on Judith's own experiences. The last-minute escape, village life in Switzerland, the family's refugee existence in Paris and their final arrival in England were all part of her childhood. Follow the deeply moving yet often humorous story of Anna and her much-loved family through their flight from Nazi Germany to their new life in war-torn London.
