Once I escaped from an orphanage to find Mum and Dad. Once I rescued a girl called Zelda from a burning house. Once I made a Nazi with toothache laugh.
Once there was a boy called Felix, who only believed in good things. Even when his parents were taken by the Nazis. Even when he hid for three years in a Polish orphanage high in the mountains. Then Felix set out to find his parents, and his whole world changed forever. Because however hopeless things are, we still have to follow our dreams, even just once… From one of Australia’s most celebrated children’s authors, Morris Gleitzman, Once is an unforgettable and wholly unique depiction of the Nazi era from a child’s eye view, which perfectly captures a young boy’s hope and resilience in the face of absolute horror. Once there was a boy called Felix. This is his story.
