Their father was a prisoner in a concentration camp and has never really left the camp.  He is physically living with his wife and three children, but he cannot forget the atrocities and horrors he had rto endure in Nazi Germany.  The narrator, Carl is the daughter of Ephraim and tells a compelling story of their unusual childhood with a father that is still living in the camps. Her brothers Max and Simon also feel the effects and play out many scenarios that they have been told by their father.  His bedtime stories can be pretty graphic and disturbing to his young children.   This book has humor and tells a tragic time in our history in such a way that the reader can identify with the children's plight in a realistic way.  (Laurie Rutter, Teacher LaFayette Jr/Sr High School)
