"Hi! My name is Annemarie Johansen. I am living in WWII Denmark. I am one of the main characters in Number the Stars. I hope I can see you reading it soon!"
Annemarie and the Soldiers
"Get Up! Come out here!"
"How very nice to meet you! My name is Ellen Rosen and I am Annemarie's neighbour and best friend! I also live in WWII Denmark! The problem is, I am Jewish, and the Nazis are looking for the Jewish population of Denmark to relocate us. I better look out!"

WE can't take care of all
"Where are Ellen's parents? We must help them too!"
Hello! I am Annemarie's little sister, Kirsti Johansen. I am 5 years old and I live in WWII Denmark. There are soldiers everywhere and they are taking all the food. I wish the food shortages would stop so I could have a cupcake or just some regular food, not just potatoes and bread.
Hello! My name is Inge Johansen, but you can call me Mama. I am Annemarie's mother, and I to live in WWII Denmark. I am best friends with Ellen's mum who you will meet soon. I do hope you read Number the Stars because it was such a pleasure to star in.
