SUMMARY ß PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ´ Uri Shulevitz

Wakening as an artist an experience that played a key role during this difficult time By turns dreamlike and nightmarish this heavily illustrated account of determination courage family loyalty and the luck of coincidence is a true publishing event. This story wasn't really a story in the traditional sense there wasn't necessarily a beginning middle and end Written by an acclaimed illustrator not an author the real story of this story is the illustrations They are absolutely magical and convey the events and mood with far ambiance and feeling that the words do I found the text to be pedantic and plodding often like a recitation of facts than a story But the illustrations came to life on the page and you could feel the little boy's guilt pain fear joy love or triumph One other interesting thing about this book is that the Jewish family didn't flee the Nazis by trying to go west they instead went east into would become the Soviet Union I've read lots of WWII novels where the refugees flee west but not too many where they go into Russia and that tiny glimpse into life in Russia during WWII was interesting Overall recommended at 3 out of 5 stars A solid read with amazing illustrations

Chance by Uri ShuleviFrom a beloved voice in children’s literature comes this landmark memoir of hope amid harrowing times and an engaging and unusual Holocaust storyWith backlist sales of over 23 million copies Uri Shulevitz one of FSG BYR’s most acclaimed picture. Books that tell the story of what people went through during WWII and the Holocaust are so important This one was from the POV of someone who had lived in Poland and fled to Russia which is not the usual WWII Holocaust story at least for me to read The story is DARK and while it is written for middle readers it might not be for every one I would recommend adults read this first before passing on to younger readers to make sure it isn't too much for them What the author went through was not easy The artwork was amazing and enhanced the words which were sparse and grim The chapters were short so a uick if not easy read Highly recommended for mature middle readers on up 4 solid sad that this happened and hopefully it never will again starsMy thanks to NetGalley and Macmillan Children's Publishing Group for an eARC copy of this book to read and review

In a way I am surprised that I read this whole book in one sitting At over 300 pages it isn't short but it also isn't dense There are a lot of illustrations and somehow the story just pulled me in Over the past few years I have been reading about World War II but this is a complicated story than the usual one Shulevitz was born in Poland but left his home when he was 4 with his parents They moved eastward to avoid German bombing The Russians sent them to the far north Yura where they eeked out a living for a while until they left again for Turkestan After the war they returned to a changed Europe eventually settling in Paris This is a story about hanging on and doing whatever you had to do to keep living It is captivating in spite of its sadness and danger And now I am wondering just how many languages Shulevitz must know
