520    Thomas Harding adapts his adult memoir of the same name 
       for younger readers, tracing the shadow of war as it falls
       across a one-story cottage and the people who share it. 
520    Grades 2-4. Houses can hold mysteries, as most children 
       know. Around this truth, Harding has built a story about 
       one particular house in Germany that witnessed history. 
       Outside of Berlin, this home with blue shutters, beside a 
       lake, holds a great deal of appeal, and readers will 
       relate to the various children who lived there, played 
       games on its lawn, swam in the lake, and interacted with 
       the natural world. Teckentrup's illustrations are light 
       and soft-focused in these peaceful spreads, but each 
       change of the house's occupants is characterized by pages 
       steeped in gray and brown--soldiers send the first owners 
       away, others flee before armies, and a wall is built 
       during another family's tenure, separating the house from 
       the lake. Finally, the house, crumbling, is visited by the
       great-grandson of the first owners, Jews who ultimately 
       fled Germany. He--the author, it turns out--takes on the 
       task of restoration, and readers will be happy to learn it
       now serves as a center for education. A story of hope for 
       children interested in history and how it relates to the 
       present. Karen Cruze. Booklist Online. AMERICAN LIBRARY
