Book cover

In times of war, courage is necessary for survival. Alex is an 11-year-old Jewish boy who lives in the ghetto with his father and great-uncle, during WWII. When Nazis come to his city and clear the town, Alex manages to escape with the help of his family, but is left with only his pet mouse. Finding refuge in an abandoned building on Bird Street, Alex seeks inspiration from his favorite book while he and his pet await his father's return.
