En LA Batalla De Inglaterra/the Other Way Round : Judith Kerr :
I don’t know what thrilled me more – the tiger or Sophie going out for dinner sausages! Right at the end of batslla book Anna asks her father about his views on Germany and kefr learn from him that it was the emotional damage done by Nazism to ordinary Germans that hurt him the most. Never has this been better expressed. I found this book to be more exciting than When Hitler Lq Pink Rabbit as the events here occurred during the war.
Anna and her family are refugees the current Government would probably call them economic migrantsand whilst Max, her laa brother, feels and acts English, his German nationality an embarrassment and an impediment, and Anna doesn’t know quite who she is, living with friends, her own family elsewhere.
This is quite strange: This often happens when a book originally published in the UK is released in the US less often the …more There are two different titles for the same book. It’s also a story about family, as many of Kerr’s are. But other than that, a good book. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. She is precise, concise, and exact. Near the end, she asks her father whether he ever felt, that there juith no point.
Kerr’s writing remains ineffable. I didn’t find John Cotmore particularly likeable but I completely understand why Anna would have been infatuated with him. Just because a man like Chamberlain appears not to be doing anything, doesn’t mean that he’s not organising it all secretly.
A few years later I read When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit and it became instantly one of the iconic abtalla which defines my childhood, read over and over and over again. Nov 24, L. The environment of London during the bombing raids is also credibly and atmospherically recreated. Brother Max feels English to the bone, but finds himself treated as a potentially dangerous German national, while Anna does all she can to avoid thinking about the war–hard to do in the middle of the Blitz, but she manages better than most.
Anna herself is still officially an “enemy alien”. Paperbackpages. Her family is in extreme poverty, she leaves school, does a secretarial course, finds work.
But the thing that really made him grew on me as a character was his love for his father, who suffered mentally after being released from a concentration camp. I howled with laughter when he reluctantly agrees to edit a friend’s memoirs, and every person is described as having piercing eyes. A lovely sequel to When Hitler stole Pink Rabbit.
However, despite the grim backdrop of war, there are plenty of uplifting moments too. It felt like a waste of time trying to read about the same character who still has her whiny, skittish, and neurotic demeanor.

En LA Batalla De Inglaterra/the Other Way Round
I had started looking up my favorite old children’s authors and found out that there were not just one but two sequels to one of my favorite books from y childhood – When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit. Eighty years after Anna fled Germany it seems that in some ways nothing has changed. My copy of this is titled Bombs on Aunt Dainty.
Highlights the difficulties faced at that time by German Jew immigrants as Hitler prepares to invade Britain. This makes Anna both very realistic and very annoying to me.
I couldn’t stop at reading two of Judith Kerr’s books; I had to learn about the author herself. That is the British understatement. Open Preview See a Problem? He notices how I feel, what I say, whether I want to shout, whether my hands are trembling — and he says, how interesting!
I really felt as though I was living her life — being frustrated at the measly food rations, her fear that at any moment a bomb could kill everyone she is close to, and not forgetting the first completely humiliating experience of unrequited love.
See 1 question about The Other Way Round…. My favorite characters in this installment were Max and Cousin Otto. The reason for this being that Anna was considerably older and, therefore, more aware of what was going on around her and the seriousness of the situation. In the first book Anna says she will never feel like a refugee as long as she is with her family, then at the start of this book you immediately find out that she is no longer living with them which is quite interesting.
