The Whispering Town - Jennifer Riesmeyer Elvgren, Fabio Santomauro

“We have new friends.” These simple words are whispered to the baker, the librarian, and the farmer—and accommodations are made for the Jewish family hiding in Anett’s basement in a small Danish village in the early 1940s. Only two more days, then a boat can take the secret friends away from the Nazis, to Sweden. But how will they get to the harbor when there is no moon, and clouds blanket the cold sky, on the night of their departure? The Whispering Town (Kar-Ben, $17.95) is born. Jennifer Elvgren’s new take on a true story, just right for introducing younger readers to the Holocaust, is perfectly balanced by Fabio Santomauro’s charming illustrations. Ages 7-10. Allison Trotter
