When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit – Judith Kerr


It says on the back of the book – When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit by Judith Kerr – that the target audience is those aged between 9 and 11. Even if it were possible for me to take a pair of scissors to my age and trim off 75% of it, I would still be outside the recommended range. In spite of this yawning gap, I thoroughly enjoyed the story, which is an autobiographical one. Although Hitler is in the title and casts a menacing shadow throughout the book, he doesn’t dominate it. Instead, we learn about the short phase in a young girl’s life as her family flee from Germany to Switzerland, then on to France, before finally settling down in England. There’s nothing thrilling or gripping to the plot, merely a pleasing sensation while observing Anna adapt to the changing, and at times difficult, situations.
