Snow Treasure - Marie McSwigan
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

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.
