When Pierrot becomes an orphan, he must leave his home in Paris for a new life with his Aunt Beatrix, a servant in a wealthy household at the top of the German mountains. But this is no ordinary time, for it is 1935 and the Second World War is fast approaching; and this is no ordinary house, for this is the Berghof, the home of Adolf Hitler. Quickly, Pierrot is taken under Hitler's wing, and is thrown into an increasingly dangerous new world: a world of terror, secrets and betrayal, from which he may never be able to escape.

A must read for those who enjoyed Boyne's 'The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas.' Once again Boyne directs the attention of the reader to the effects of living in Austria during World War II and the impact this has on a young 7 year old boy. You will learn about the inner turmoil one goes through as they encounter the impact the power of a uniform holds for a person. The theme 'man's inhumanity to man' which is straight out of a Robert Burn poem, 'Man,' touches at the heart of a reader who will use this book as a lens to our own world and ask the question: How far has humanity come today?
