Nothing-not even the chance to live-makes Dr. Korczak abandon the children of the Warsaw Ghetto.
Why we like it: Warning: Read this book with a tissue box within arm’s reach. Mister Doctor is a sad and uplifting story about a dark time in human history. The somberness of the story is further conveyed by the detailed and realistic sketches. The illustrations are colored in grays and lines are used to show texture. This book shows us that even in our darkest hours, there is hope in humanity.
