Boyne, John The Boy in the Striped Pajamas, illustrated by Oliver Jeffers, 335 pages. Knopf (Random), 2016/2006. $19.
You might think that its odd to have Oliver Jeffers, a picture book author, illustrating a book about the Holocaust. However, this is a book about children. A heart wrenching book about children. So it is perfect. Ironic, really. I will be replacing at least one of my copies of the original with this version. I think I will always keep both versions in the library.
