Your dads job is moving locations, so we have to move as well. The maids are packing your bags already.
But what about my two best friends, we had plans for the summer!
In the beginning of the book, the mother tells Bruno that they are going to have to move. Someone found an important job for his father far away. Bruno wasnt excited about it at all, he was going to have to move away from his 2 best friends.
Bruno was told not to go near the fence, but he goes anyway. He meets a boy named Shmuel.
Bruno gave Shmuel food but Shmuel gets in trouble for eating it, because Bruno blamed it on Shmuel.
Bruno apologizes, and when he gets home he finds out that he's going back to Berlin. Shmuel wants to get Bruno a pair of striped pajamas so they can find his dad before going back.
The next day Shmuel had the striped pajamas, so Bruno goes to the other side of the fence and they set off to find his dad.
When they're walking they hear a whistle and walk with everyone else. They were all going to a long room, after that there was no sight of Bruno.
