10~11 Maddie (MaddieSpencer) | 2 comments I found out when I got the part of Kirsty,in Number the Stars, that it takes place in Denmark. Art is very important in Denmark. In Aarhus , the second largest city in Denmark, art is on tall buildings, and small street corners. Denmark sounds like a great place to go someday!
