This book reminds us of Christmas Menorahs because the drawings look alike in both books. It is also like Christmas Menorahs because they both have a tragedy and the Jewish people's feelings are being hurt. We think this book has a lesson in it. The lesson is we are all the same in different ways. Another lesson is treat people the way you want to be treated. We think the drawings of the characters are interesting because they look like the characters in Christmas Menorahs. Daniel's favorite character is Helen because she tries to find out where Lydia is because she doesn't hear from her. Bryan's favorite character is Lydia because Lydia is Helen's best friend and she helped Helen be less afraid when they heard footsteps coming up the stairs.
We recommend this book to boys and girls or even adults because it is based on history. This story might interest readers because it teaches people to be tolerant and not intolerant. This book is interesting because it also teaches you to stick up for your friends.
