What I liked about the book, the Boy in the Sriped Pajamas

I liked how sometimes I actually knew more about the war than Bruno does this intreguied me to see if he would learn anymore or if I would learn anymore. This book is educational yet fictional. If I were to pick a book for my class to read this would be one of my choices. ( my daugher read and reviewed this book, 13yrs old)

Pajamas / Pyjamas, I found that there were a number of ways to spell it while looking for a photo. I thought I would use a few different ones.
