1.   The Cats in Krasinski Square
Karen Hesse (Author), Wendy Watson (Illustrator)
When Karen Hesse came upon a short article about cats out-foxing the Gestapo at the train station in Warsaw during WWII, she couldn't get the story out of her mind. The result is this account of two Jewish sisters, escapees of the infamous Warsaw ghetto, who devise a plan to thwart an attempt by the Gestapo to intercept food bound for starving people behind the dark Wall.
