Publisher's Summary

Life can be beautiful if you make it beautiful. It is up to you.

Eddie lived with his family and adorable dachshund, Lulu, in the beautiful city of Leipzig in Germany. But one day, into the sunshine of his childhood crept a dark, heavy cloud. Not a rain cloud. Much worse than that. Adolf Hitler came to power.

When Eddie was 18, he was sent to a concentration camp.

A picture book adaptation for older listeners (8+ years) based on the extraordinary, the bestselling adult title The Happiest Man on Earth

The story is framed as a conversation between 101-year-old Eddie and his great grandchildren—who are bursting with questions about the life of their Pépé.

The story of Eddie's life unfolds beautifully, sensitively, heartbreakingly through his words, and exquisite illustrations by Nathaniel Eckstrom.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.
