The Boys Who Challenged Hitler



The Boys Who Challenged Hitler: Knud Pedersen and the Churchill Club by Phillip Hoose. Grades 7+ Farrar, Strauss, & Giroux, May 2015. 208 pages.

This is a gripping true adventure story that will have wide appeal with kids. Much of the story is told in Knud Petersen’s own words, collected through hours of interview and hundreds of emails, which gives the book an authentic voice and brings the reader right into the action. And the action is nonstop. These brave kids had a fire in their hearts and they would stop at nothing to save their country from the Nazi invasion.
