If you are looking for a book that will scare your child and create fear where there is no reason for it then this is the book for you. This book is not appropriate for kids as it talks about terrorism, nazi, bombs and guns that kill lots of people. There is a dead child covered in blood along with skulls and bombs, concentration camps! Not for children. This book was at our elmentery school and is now being pulled from the shelves. THe whole series will be pulled. The author should really look at the topic she picks when gearing books for 8 year olds. Big fail!!!
