Author Bio
Donna Jo Napoli
An author of fiction for children and adult nonfiction and mystery novels, writer Donna Jo Napoli is admired for her alternate versions of familiar fairy tales. Presented as novels, these stories explore the psychological motives of such characters as the witch in Hansel and Gretel (THE MAGIC CIRCLE) and the witch/stepmother, prince, and lead character of Rapunzel (ZEL). A graduate of Radcliffe, Napoli has also worked as a professor of linguistics at Swarthmore College and is the author of several adult-level books on linguistics.

Praise

Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"Since very little World War II literature for children has dealt with the experience of the Italians, this account of two Venetian boys abducted by their ostensible allies, the Germans, for slave labor provides an unusual look at the war." - Betsy Hearne February 1998

Kirkus Reviews
"...a powerful novel set in a vividly realized wartime milieu....Riveting." 10/15/1997
