Snow Treasure - Marie McSwigan

Product Description(
In the bleak winter of 1940, Nazi troops parachuted into Peter Lindstrom's tiny Norwegian village and held it captive. Nobody thought the Nazis could be defeated—until Uncle Victor told Peter how the children could fool the enemy. It was a dangerous plan. They had to slip past Nazi guards with nine million dollars in gold hidden on their sleds. It meant risking their country's treasure—and their lives. This classic story of how a group of children outwitted the Nazis and sent the treasure to America has captivated generations of readers.

MY THOUGHTS:  This was a really great book.  I love reading books about history and this one is based on a rumor that for 60 years the story was believed true.  But there was never any proof to prove it.  The story is so believable!  I could see all these children hauling all this cold down to the fjord to be put on a boat.  The author has taken what is a rumor and makes you believe it's true.  I give this 5.....
