Milkweed is one of those books that...reaches out from its pages and grabs your heart, says Bridget Green, age 13.
The award-winning novel follows the misadventures of a diminutive Polish orphan who lives on the streets of Warsaw as the Jackboots come to make life impossible for Jews, gypsies, and orphans who steal bread. Sparkling writing, unforgettable characters, and solid historical underpinnings make the story of this unlikely little hero a book that will not only inform young readers about the Holocaust, but also will make them care.
