- The Times


Paul Colbert’s French village has been under Nazi

control for years. His Jewish best friend has disappeared. Food

do to make things better.

Then Paul finds an American paratrooper stuck in a tree. When

Paul helps the soldier, he discovers a secret resistance movement

– and he learns the Allies have a plan to crush the Nazis.

But first, the resistance needs Paul’s help.

This is Paul’s chance to make a difference. Soon he finds

himself in the midst of the largest invasion in history. Can he

do his part to turn horror into hope?

"Praise forI Survived the Sinking of the Titanic, 1912 (I Survived Graphic Novel #1): ""The first installment of Tarshis' sprawling prose disaster oeuvre for young readers is reimagined in visually interesting full-color comic panels that support its recognizable thrilling pace and convenient twists. Many of the most exciting scenes are largely wordless, spotlighting the propulsive action amid growing tensions. A fresh and interesting adaptation, making for an easy crowd pleaser."" -- Kirkus Reviews ""Dark, subdued, inky art sets a somber tone, while a parade of mostly small panels builds suspense and promises to engage readers."" -- School Library Journal Praise for I Survived the Nazi Invasion, 1944 (I Survived Graphic Novel #3): ""A crowd pleaser ...
