Anna and the Swallow Man is a stunning debut novel for readers aged ten to one hundred and ten that tells a new story of World War Two.
Kraków, 1939, is no place to grow up. There are a million marching soldiers and a thousand barking dogs. And Anna Lania is just seven years old when the Germans take her father and suddenly, she's alone.

Then she meets the Swallow Man. He is a mystery, strange and tall. And like Anna's missing father, he has a gift for languages: Polish, Russian, German, Yiddish, even Bird. When he summons a bright, beautiful swallow down to his hand to stop her from crying, Anna is entranced.

Over the course of their travels together, Anna and the Swallow Man will dodge bombs, tame soldiers, and even, despite their better judgement, make a friend. But in a world gone mad, everything can prove dangerous . . .

Recenzii

A chilling, stylishly written and utterly memorable story
A small wonder, and for once a book worthy of the hype
The breakout WWII drama . . . is causing quite the stir amongst both adults and the pre-teens it's aimed at
Tense, moving, original and skilled, this phenomenal debut will seize sophisticated readers
It sometimes seems there can be no stories left to tell about the anguish of Nazi-occupied countries in 1939-45 but the debut novel by Gavriel Savit makes the territory new
A beautifully haunting and thought-provoking story of friendship that lingers long after the last page
A bold first novel that promises more from the undoubtedly talented Savit
A beautifully written debut
This wonderfully original concept, enigmatic in style yet grounded in brutal reality, is written with deceptive power and grace
A stark and beautifully written tale that will leave you feeling unsettled yet enthralled
Savit's young adult novel reveals the power and danger of language, the necessity for deceit when humanity is under siege and . . . the hope that we will all find a guardian when we most need it
Savit brilliantly dramatizes the adventures of survival . . . this book has an enticing sense of fable
Savit's story is aimed at anyone who will listen. A 10-year-old may identify with Anna. A teenage reader will absorb the deftness and sophistication of the telling. An adult will find his or her expectations challenged
There's much for adults to love about Gavriel Savit's beautiful tale
The book that brings magic to the 20th century's darkest hour
Savit captures the moods, fears and delightful conversation of this odd couple on their implausible odyssey. It's a touching tale, both sad and sweet
An astonishingly accomplished debut about war, survival and humanity . . . this is very much in the territory of The Book Thief and The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas with all the potential that such a comparison suggests
[a] complex graceful book
Exquisite
Exquisite debut novel
Like the characters in his debut novel, author Gavriel Savit has harnessed the power of language. He's a talented wordsmith, wielding words and sentences with a precision that allows them to wriggle deep into this reader's heart, leaving me both enchanted and brokenhearted
One of those all ages and no age stories . . . told by a genuine wordsmith . . . And it's a story of generosity in the worst of times. Of friendship and loyalty and yes, of love despite all the horror. We won't forget how it felt to read it. Ever
A beautiful and stunning read . . . It creeps slowly into your heart just like Morris Gleitzman'sOnce, and The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas did
Such an important, painful, beautiful, hopeful read
A harsh tale of innocence lost, yet touched with magic
This is cleverly done and beautifully written tale of loss, hope, survival and trust
Savit spins a dark and heart-breaking tale of history and fable seen through the eyes of a child. A thought-provoking read, great for book clubs
A complex, gruelling trip through the midnight of the last century
