Haunting... dangerous and desperate, but also full of courage and hope.' The Guardian

Once I escaped from an orphanage to find my Mum and Dad.
Once I saved a girl called Zelda from a burning house.
Once I made a Nazi with toothache laugh.
My name is Felix.
This is my story.

The powerful and moving story of a young boy named Felix who, during the Holocaust, tries to survive and make sense of the world around him. Told with humour and heart, this book offers a unique perspective on one of the darkest chapters in human history and serves as a reminder of the resilience and hope that can be found even in the direst of circumstances.
