    Overview

    Summary
    THE PUPPET BOY OF WARSAW is the story of Mika, a Jewish boy who inherits a coat from his grandfather and discovers a puppet in one of its many secret pockets. He becomes a puppeteer in the Warsaw ghetto, but when his talent is discovered, Mika is forced to entertain the occupying German troops instead of his countrymen. It is also the story of Max, a German soldier stationed in Warsaw, whose experiences in Poland and later in Siberia's Gulag show a different side to the Second World War. As one of Mika's puppets is passed to the soldier, a war-torn legacy is handed from one generation to another. Gripping and heartbreaking in equal measure, THE PUPPET BOY OF WARSAW is a story of courage and redemption that will appeal to anyone who enjoyed THE BOOK THIEF or THE BOY WITH STRIPED PYJAMAS, and marks the arrival of an important new talent.
