What the Book Is About

Motti, the child of Holocaust survivors, lives in Israel in 1964. Fueled by news reports of double agents arrested in Egypt, he and his best friend let their imaginations run wild as they conjure up images of countless spies sneaking around their town. The story’s somber descriptions of survivors’ many struggles are deftly balanced by the lightness of the boys’ fast-paced and very funny spy-hunting adventures.
 

Jewish Content & Values

  • Motti’s parents are Holocaust survivors living in Israel. The aftermath of the Holocaust is integral to the story.
  • There’s plenty of detail of life in Israel in the 1960s.
  • Motti and his friends go from door to door collecting Purim gifts.

Content Advisory

The Holocaust material is not graphic, but survivors struggle with emotional health, poverty, and hunger.
