    "Beat you to the turn!" Peter Lundstrom shot his sled down the long steep slope.

    That's how the book begins, with a small bunch of carefree schoolchildren, sledding down the snowy hills. Little do they know, but soon they will be risking their lives to do more sledding. It's World War II and the German Nazis have made a camp right outside of the little town in Norway, where all the children and their families live.

    Now, in this town there is something very important that is hidden. The Nazis must not know about it. The townspeople have to devise a plan to protect the secret, before the soldiers discover it.

    Uncle Victor: "Peter wants a chance to help his country, too. Don't you fellow?"

    Peter nodded. He didn't trust his voice.

    "So you wouldn't mind if you met an enemy--one that carried a gun?"

    All the schoolchildren must band together and do something for their town that could be terrifying. Together they will master all their strength and courage, to protect what is theirs.

    This is a delightful book to read! I've read it at least twice myself. It's a wholesome story, filled with brave little children.

    Reading level: ages 9-12 and up (also great as a read-aloud for younger children)

    This delightful story of young heros is or may be based on a true story of WWII and how the children outwitted the German soldiers and saved their nation's gold supply. You will never see snow and sledding in the same way. All youngsters should read and discuss this story.
