Limericks & Nazis


There once were three siblings who were at war

(Not with each other; something more hardcore)

The Nazis came in

Left them nothing to win

In the end, what were they fighting for?

(One of the ways this Sydney Taylor Honor winning trilogy about kids fighting Nazis is most interesting is that everything is ambiguous -- doing what is legally the right this is different from ethically the right thing, and different again from a number of conventions -- obeying your parents, listening to your teachers, etc.  Carla Jablonski and Leland Purvis do a very nice job of conveying that in-between state here.  This next volume of the trilogy comes out in June.)
