Now, Paperback
4 out of 5 (1 rating)


"Now" is the third shocking, funny and heartbreaking book in Morris Gleitzman's "Second World War" series.

Sometimes facing the past is the bravest act of all...Once I didn't know about my grandfather Felix's scary childhood.

Then I found out what the Nazis did to his best friend Zelda.

Now I understand why Felix does the things he does. At least he's got me. My name is Zelda too. This is our story. Now is the third in a series of children's novels about Felix, a Jewish orphan caught in the middle of the Holocaust, from Australian author Morris Gleitzman - author of "Bumface" and "Two Weeks with the Queen".

The other books in the series, "Once, Then and After" are also available from Puffin.

Review by

While I was more involved with the first two novels I think Gleitzman has done well to relate the past to the present in this novel. The destruction of the Victorian bushfires in 2009 was a relevant context in which to explore the conclusion of the story of Felix and Zelda. I am glad to have finally read it and definitely recommend it to others who have read Once and Then.
