Book Review: Once

Morris Gleitzman’s ‘Once’ Series

Reviewed by Lottie – now in Y7

This series of five books (‘Once’, ‘Then’, ‘Now’, ‘After’ and ‘Soon’) is set at the time of the Holocaust. The stories are very real and based on events of the time.

The main character (Felix) has to overcome lots of difficulties.  The books are quite sad at some points.

I have read all of these books and think they are aimed at children who are aged 9+.
