Tulips for Breakfast is set in Amsterdam during the Second World War, from the arrival of the German army to liberation.

For much of this time, Adelena lives in hiding in the home of her music teacher. Her Jewish parents, who fled pre-war Germany with Adelena, have left her in the care of someone else in the belief their only child's chances of survival are greatest if she can remain in hiding for as long as it takes to be free again. Adelena feels abandoned but finds a way to adjust, her heart warmed by memories.

Industry Reviews
'... Tulips for Breakfast is an engaging story, encouraging readers to empathise with what life was like for young Jewish people caught up in war. Catherine Bauer is particularly adept at showing how surreal it was for young people to be thrust into wartime how ordinary their lives felt and how shocking it was to have their entire lives pulled away from them. Tulips for Breakfast is ideal for teen readers moved by the diary of Anne Frank or who enjoy historical fiction from authors such as Jackie French and Kirsty Murray.' – Lefa Singleton Norton, Books + Publishing
