    Product Code: JKER
    Collection 11 years +
    Hand-picked favourites
    Having sold over 1.2 million copies of her books in the UK alone, Judith Kerr is one of our most cherished authors.

    The three books in this collection are partly inspired by her childhood growing up during the Second World War. They're poignant, emotional and told with great humour.

    When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit is the unforgettable story of a Jewish family fleeing from Germany before the start of WWII. It finds 9-year-old Anna's father going missing. Straight away she and her brother Max are rushed away, in alarming secrecy, to a completely new place. Everything they know from Germany - home, schoolmates, toys - will now be a distant memory.

    In Bombs on Aunt Daity (previously published as The Other Way Round), Anna is a teenager and she's living in London during the Blitz. The bombs are coming from Germany - the country that was once her own. How will she and her beloved refugee family survive if Hitler does invade?

    The final book in the trilogy is A Small Person Far Away. In this emotional tale, Anna has to head back to Berlin to visit her dangerously ill Mama. While there, she will have to face a past that she has shut away for so long.

    Hamish and the WorldStoppers asks what would you do if the world just stopped... The birds in the air, planes in the sky and every single other person has been frozen by The Terribles. But luckily, 10-year-old Hamish Ellerby knows all about them and is getting set to save the world.

    Hamish and the Neverpeople finds the Earth under threat from a shadowy figure, sinister monsters, thundering metal oddballs and beings that are just like humans (but also not at all); and Hamish also has to deal with a burping noise and weird seeds falling from the sky...
