Note: 
An exciting and off-beat story about the Danish rescue of Jews during World War II. Bamse, the narrator, is part of a theatrical family and this gives the novel dramatic color. His older brother joins the Resistance almost immediately after the Nazis invade but his parents are reluctant to get involved until they learn that the Danish Jews, including some of their friends, are to be arrested and deported. All of them become rescuers, with each parents lending her or his particular talent to the effort. Multi-dimensional characters and a humorous writing style bring eleven year old Bamse, his family and friends to life, placing them in the position of unlikely heroes.
