Eve Bunting has written over 250 children's books based on different cultures and histories. This book is an allegory representing the taking of the Jews from their homes during World War II by the Nazis. It is set in the forest inhabited by small creatures. Group by group they are slowly disappearing, being taken by the Terrible Things, while the creatures left turn their heads. This story is a great way to explain this part of history to children of all ages. It was thought provoking.
