Gustave is an eleven year old Jewish boy who lives with his family in Paris, France in 1940. He and his two best friends are inseparable as they attend school and are Boy Scouts together. That is, until news about the Germans persuades his family to leave Paris for a 'safe' place in the countryside until they can obtain visas to sail to America. German soldiers in uniform and planes bombing the highway are just a few of the unhappy events. However, Gustav finds a way to distract the German soldiers so that his father can help with the Resistance in France. It is a good first book about the Holocaust.
