The second installment of Morris Gleitzman’s heart-rending, WWII-set Once, Then, & Now trilogy opens with Felix and Zelda scurrying across the Polish countryside after bravely escaping a Nazi train bound for a death camp, and follows them on their journey to find a home and reestablish a sense of normalcy in the face of unspeakable tragedy.
Morris Gleitzman’s pitch-perfect performance of his own work masterfully captures his vivid, tactile prose and the complex amalgam of emotions - despair, fear, love, and ultimately, hope - on display in this accomplished and unflinching short story for young adults in the vein of The Diary of Anne Frank.
Here is a sequel to the highly acclaimed Once, written and narrated by one of Australia's most popular children's authors.
Then is the second story of Felix and Zelda. They escaped from the Nazis, but how long can they now survive when there are so many people ready to hand them over for a reward? Thanks to the courage of a kind, brave woman, they are able to hide for a time in the open, but Felix knows he has a distinguishing feature that identifies him as a Jew and that it is only a matter of time before he is discovered, which will mean death for them all. Even though he promised Zelda he would never leave her, he knows he has to, before it is too late....
