This book is one of my childhood favorites, that I've gone back to several times over the years. It's based on a true story, and it's a lovely one to boot! During the early days of World War II, Norway is dealing with the threat of German soldiers on their doorsteps. Worried about their assets, the Norwegians hatch a plan to sneak gold bullion past the Nazis, hidden on children's sleds.

This story really keeps you hooked, rooting for the children, Uncle Victor, and Per Garson to continue their grand plan and not get caught by the Nazis.
