A Young Boys Diary From WW11


I Saw A Beautiful Woodpecker by Michal Is a true Diary of A Young Boy at the Outbreak of WW11. 

He was given an assignment in school to write a sentence a day. This book contains his translated entries over illustrations by Ala Bankroft. 

His simple sentences written with innocence and poise are adorable and devastating. From finding a caterpillar to hiding from planes.

Also includes reproductions of his entries.

This was truly a remarkable read.

Disclaimer: I received a complimentary book for my honest opinion.
