The night the Nazis come to take their mother away, three children escape in a terrifying scramble across the rooftops. Alone in the chaos of Warsaw, they must learn to survive on their own. Then they meet Jan – a ragged boy clutching a silver paperknife that they recognise as belonging to their long-lost father. The ‘silver sword’ becomes their symbol of hope as, with Jan, they begin a hazardous journey across war-torn Europe in search of their parents.

Lexiles are the global standard in reading assessment. They are unique as
they are able to measure a child and a book on the same scale – ensuring
the right book gets to the right child at the right time.
