During WWII the people of the Nazi occupied Danish town of Gilleleje helped 1,700 Jews escape to Sweden. This book tells the story of those brave residents and one night in particular when they had to figure out a new way to lead an escaping family to the ships that would take them to safety.
Reading Level: Grades 3 - 7
Louie is a bit different from the other fifth-graders. He wants to be a comedian like his idol Lou Lafferman.Class so he has a notebook of jokes and comedy routines. What he doesn't want to be is class B.U.R.P. (Boy Used to Ridicule and Put-Downs) and that's just what Louie was until a video of him was aired on T.V. But the popularity bump didn't last, so Louie figures he needs something else even if that means upsetting his two best friends. Kids will love this second Louie Burger book and maybe even learn a few new jokes like "Why didn't anyone want to babysit the little vampire?"
