Unusual book

This was a book used by my book club and while it wasn't the usual genre I read, I did enjoy it and it made for a good discussion

Quirky, fun, and for adults as well as kids

Never Never Land meets the Holocaust

An interesting sort of Alternate Reality view of human resilience, suffering, and prejudice vis a vis the Holocaust, accentuated with photos of "different" survivors.

Great book!

This book started a little slow for me, but once you kept reading, you just couldn't put it down. If this book doesn't become a movie, I'll be surprised.

Don't be fooled by the captivating title. The author has taken a potentially spooky subject and written yet another time travel joke book. My advice-If you want deformed super-heroes rent the Incredibles, if you want time travel watch Bill and Ted. (either one ) if you want a nap-read this book.
