Description - Hana's Suitcase Anniversary Edition by Karen Levine
'Really, it's a very ordinary looking suitcase. You could fit quite a lot in it. Books, games, treasures, toys. But nothing is inside it now. Across the front, there is a girl's name, Hana Brady. A date of birth: May 16 1931. And Waisenkind. That's the German word for orphan.'
Where did Hana Brady come from? Where was she going? What did she pack?
What Fumiko finds in Hana's suitcase is a true story of terrible sadness and great joy.
'Such a simple little book and yet so powerful' Sunshine Coast Sunday
'An extraordinarily powerful book' Dianne Dempsey, The Age
Along with the original story, this anniversary edition includes updates from the author, Hana's brother, George Brady, and Fumiko Ishioka, and a sampling of the thousands of letters, tributes, artwork and photographs sent in by children touched by Hana's story.
