Editorial Reviews

Review

Exquisitely detailed, Krystyna Mihulka’s Krysia proves in clear and accessible prose that even such malevolent forces as Stalinism and Nazism were rendered powerless in the face of the most basic human order — a loving family. —Eugene Yelchin, author of Breaking Stalin’s Nose
"We do not read a story about little Krysia, we are Krysia." —BookPleasures.com


“Elegant, eye-opening, and memorable.”  —Kirkus Reviews


“This memoir has power and does the necessary work of prompting readers to try to imagine what it’s like to be among the millions of children undergoing similar upheavals in the war zones of today.” —Booklist


“The text is exceptionally educational, offering language help, maps, and photographs to fill in the details of Krysia’s harrowing tale. Still, despite the tragedy, Krysia’s story is also one of hope, making it a distinctively interesting and useful nonfiction text for young adult readers.” — VOYA


“The child’s voice offers a heart-wrenching perspective on the evils inflicted by Nazism and Stalinism along with the suffering the family endured…” —The Buffalo News Online


“It’s an affecting personal story, vividly told…” —Wall Street Journal


"Krysia is exceptionally well organized and presented, making it an unreservedly recommended addition to school and community library Contemporary Biography collections for children.” —Midwest Book Review


“Painting a vivid picture of a child’s experience as a civilian caught among warring powers, Mihulka’s story offers many opportunities for discussion, especially given the current refugee crisis.” —School Library Journal
