En LA Batalla De Inglaterra/the Other Way Round

I howled with laughter when he reluctantly agrees to edit a friend’s memoirs, and every person is described as having piercing eyes. See 1 question about The Other Way Round…. From things I’ve read, it sounds like most of the story is related to her family and her own life.

Want to Read saving…. It was amazing the way she made the best out of everything for her family. Through Anna and those around her, we saw inglatetra various cost and effect of the war to people around Anna. The second volume in Kerr’s WW2 memoirs; Vol 1 was chopped off in mid-conversation on arrival in London. The war is on and she’s in the middle of tbe blitz – a German refugee. Brother Max feels English to the bone, but finds himself treated as a potentially dangerous German national, while Anna does all she can to avoid thinking about the war–hard to do in the middle of the Blitz, but she manages better than most.

The environment of London during the bombing raids is also credibly and atmospherically recreated.

Her love affair during the last part of the story was particularly boring. The changing relationship between Anna and her parents is explored sensitively and poignantly and indeed painfully. Aunt Dainty is such a minor character and she’s never actually bombed, so Although given that Anna starts the book aged 15 and is 21 by the end, I’d argue it’s YA.

Very little talk of rationing or the difficulties of living out the Blitz, but as a young girl with her first job living in a boarding house, she might have been less affected than those who had to do their own shopping, cooking etc.


Thanks for telling us about the problem. It’s a fictionalized account of her fleeing from Germany at the start of World War II and it was terrifying and fascinating and something I read repeatedl I got this – man, I think it was two years ago now. This book continued a family’s journey away from Germany to a new life. And it was a tough read for right now, because I couldn’t help but compare it to the political situation we’re in and wondering where it’s going to lead.

Some of this is naturally due to Anna’s age, but a lot of this is due to the context. Want to Read Currently Reading Read. This is a quick and easy read suitable for readers of all ages.

Anna is now in London, war is hitting home, and she is growing up. The relationship she had with Papa was also batallz I liked. If you do not know Kerr’s work, her elegant, beautiful, and heartfelt work, then now is the time to become acquainted. Kerr was born in Berlin but left Germany with her parents and her brother, Michael, in Judith Kerr is a German-born British writer and illustrator who has created both enduring picture books such as the Mog series and The Tiger Who Came To Tea and acclaimed novels for older children such as the autobiographical When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit which give a child’s-eye view of the Second World War.

Inglqterra notices how I feel, what I say, whether I want to shout, whether my hands are trembling — and he says, how interesting! Near the end, she asks her father whether he ever felt, that there was no point.

They were forced to leave as her father, noted drama critic, journalist and screenwriter Alfred Kerrhad openly criticised the Nazis,who burned his books shortly after the family had fled Germany.

This often happens when a book originally published in the UK is released in the US less often the other way around because the publishers sometimes think a certain title will have more appeal to the American public.

Those bombs are coming from Germany — the country that was once her own. Anna’s brother Max is sent to an internment camp, to the extreme distress of Mama. My copy of this is titled Bombs on Aunt Dainty.


The story follows Anna as she tries to settle in London. Another is that inglaterar I had not lived through them I would never have known what it felt like. They travelled first to Switzerland and then on into France, before finally settling in Britain, where Kerr has lived ever since.

Judith recalls the growing pains of an adolescent girl, falling in love for the first time, seeking a job and earning money and th This is the second in Judith Kerr’s autobiographical trilogy and follows when Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit.

Johnson rated it it was amazing Shelves: She and her parents are living in a “hotel” ie boarding house for European refugees while her beloved brother is studying law at Cambridge.

I wish I could sit down and talk to Ms Kerr–I’d ask how much of the story was autobiographical. Bombs on Aunt Dainty follows a teenager called Anna. Kerr’s writing remains ineffable. He packs law books instead of clothes, as his exams are in two weeks, and he either thinks he won’t be detained judjth or he doesn’t want to fall behind on his studying. Thought-provoking for adults and children alike. An excellent book about coming of age during WW2.

I have to say that “The Other Way Round” doesn’t say “war story” to me. It takes Anna from 15 to about 19, jnglaterra the end of her schooling and into her first job, along with her discovery of art this was particularly well-described.


No trivia or quizzes yet. This makes Anna both very realistic and very annoying to me. Instead they live each day to the full — enjoying small pleasures and make the best of what must have been a truly terrible time in history.
