Pierrot must leave his home in Paris for a new life with his aunt Beatrix when he becomes an orphan in 1935. But this is no ordinary time, for the Second World War is fast approaching. And the wealthy Austrian household where Beatrix works as a servant is no ordinary house—this is the Berghof, the home of Adolf Hitler. Soon Pierrot is taken under Hitler's wing and thrown into a world of terror, secrets, and betrayal from which he may never be able to escape.

The Boy at the Top of the Mountain, written by the author of The Boy in the Striped Pajamas, is another extraordinary historical novel about World War II—and the struggle to maintain innocence in the face of the ultimate evil.
