The cats in Krasinski Square once belonged to someone; and so did a young girl, whose family has been destroyed by war. Even as she and her sister struggle to survive amid the war's chaos, they risk their lives for a plan to help those still trapped behind Warsaw's infamous Ghetto walls. Newbery Medallist Karen Hesse has written a beautiful story about the courage of brave young women and men who, at great risk, fought not with weapons, but with their hearts and souls. Wendy Watson's luminous paintings inspire a visual journey to a time and place that should never be forgotten.

Reviews
Beautifully produced with large cream coloured pages and framed illustrations in appropriately subdued but luminous tones, reflecting the mix of hope and despair in the text. This poignant and subtly illustrated picture book would be a thought provoking addition to KS2 libraries. (School Library Journal )
