Norfolk Children's Book Centre

Address: Wayside,Alby,NR11 7HB



Seven-year-old Anna’s story begins in Krakov in 1939. When her father is suddenly removed by the authorities she is completely alone, locked out of her home. A tall, thin stranger engages her in conversation, and so they begin a relentless journey together, criss-crossing borders over several long years. He teaches her how to survive on the road despite harsh conditions, near starvation and constant fear. This is a chilling, stylishly written and utterly memorable story.
