A touching story written in a deceptively simple manner A must read for both young and old This is the story of Jewish children escaping from Poland and trying to cross the border into Spain while hiding from the German army during WW2 It is the story of a little boy and his family who risk everything to help.As a realistic description of a little bit of history, this little book tugs at your heartstrings and shows you compassion and the best traits of humanity in the middle of a German occupied country It is heartbreaking and uplifting at the same time and I loved every bit of it. Michael Morpurgo writes about difficult times in the past and in the present, and although his writing is aimed at children they are very powerful, realistic and likely to bring a tear or two to your eyes Waiting for Anya is no exception, set in a French village next to the Spanish boarder when World War II was rife and German soldiers made their presence known by their constant patrolling around the village and mountains A young boy called Jo, experiences a heroic journey when he discovers some hidden Jewish children waiting to cross the boarder to Spain and to safety Through this journey Jo has to be trusting, keep big secrets, deal with guilt, learn the heartache of loss and most of all be brave and strong for the Jewish children All along learning how kind the unlikeliest of person can be and just how cruel the human race can unfortunately sometimes be.Waiting for Anya is best suited for upper KS2, a great story to read if studying World War II It offers an interesting perspective of the war and shows how people were effected in different ways and the lengths that people, no matter their age were willing to go to to help others Waiting for Anya would create some indepth discussions for the children, forming their own opinions of the main events and also to compare the story to their own lives Morpurgo seems to have a lovely knack to encourage this type of thinking This will certainly not be the last Morpurgo book that I will be reading.

Emotional, moving and Michael Morpurgo at his finest Read this to see if our kids would be old enough to begin on Michael Morpugo s books and actually thoroughly enjoyed it myself Very real characters and a very moving story Didn t want to put it down. I love Michael Morpurgo He writes in a very stark, deceptively simple manner which belies the skill behind his work The ending of this left me feeling physically winded Amazing writer This is no exception. REALLY worth reading Not normally the type of book that I am drawn to and usually enjoy, but this book is so good that it didn t matter I believe most people would enjoy it V emotional, so make sure you stock up on the tissues and don t read it on pubic transport. Waiting for Anya is about the time through the holocaust in a small town in France It is about a young boy, name Joe and how his courage grows.
