This is so good. I was so scared for the little boy and happy to hear the soldiers leave without finding him. I love your rhyme, too. Good job!

I felt the fear, tension and relief of your little boy. Great job of bringing a horrible part of history alive to your reader.
I enjoyed this story very much. My children would love to hear me read this to them.
Thank you.
Absolutely chilling...and excellently written. It captures very well a very evil time through the eyes of innocence.

So believable, like I was right there too. What a terrible time in our modern history.
I enjoyed your story very much. I'm always horrified when I read about this era. I could easily see this becoming a book for young teens. Good job.

Heart-racing suspense. I love the POV of the innocent child. I wonder if he knows deep down that this is no game. Terrifyingly good fiction.

Nicely done. I wonder whether it would have helped us get inside David's head if we had known how old he was.

Powerful in its simplicity; innocence arrayed against insane hatred; beautifully expressed.
Excellent story of suspense
