Berlin in 1938 is not a safe place to be if you're Jewish. For Matti and many other Jewish children it means being sent to England for safety. Placed with a foster family in the British countryside, Matti is happy but desperate for his parents to join him. He starts working on a plan, but will it work out in time?

Emerald/Band 15 books provide a widening range of genres including science fiction and biography, prompting more ways to respond to texts.

Text type: A story set in the past.

A map of Europe on pages 46-47 shows Matti’s route from Berlin to London.
