Michael Rosen is a master of pace and clarity... Essential reading.
- The Times, Children's Book of the Week
Five stars ... extraordinary and affecting.
- The Telegraph, Children's Book of the Week
Rosen handles the difficult topic as sensitively and thoughtfully as you would expect, always writing in a straightforward and accessible way for children, interspersed with his own poetry.
- BookTrust, the UK's largest reading charity
Fascinating, chilling and poignantly personal.
- Financial Times
The Missing may ostensibly concern the Holocaust but, as Rosen makes clear, this is a book about facing down prejudice, defying those who would sow the seeds of hat red and opening our arms to those in need.
