Synopses & Reviews
A story about friendship, honor, and bravery—now in paperback.
For David Nathan, Copenhagen is the most beautiful city in the world. Even Nazis in the street cant make Copenhagen ugly. But life has changed since the soldiers arrived. His parents are always worried. And his older sister
goes to school early and comes home late. Sometimes she doesnt come home at all! Davids father is a baker, and since the war began, butter and cream are very hard to find. So David is amazed when his father makes a “special order” of cream-filled chocolate éclairs. But when no one comes to pick up the éclairs, David is asked to run a very special errand. Its an errand that will change his life . . . forever.
Joan Betty Stuckners early chapter book brings an important time period to light in a way that is thrilling, inspirational, and age-appropriate for Stepping Stone readers.
