This is the second story of Felix and Zelda.

They escaped from the Nazis but how long can they now survive when there are so many people ready to hand them over for a reward?

Thanks to the courage of a kind, brave woman they are able to hide for a time in the open, but Felix knows he has a distinguishing feature that identifies him as a Jew.

    After reading Morris Gleitzmans previous book ‘Once’ to this book ‘Then’ this is just as heart clenching, intensified, gorgeous book as the first of the series the whole series being the best books I have ever read. It continues to give you an insight to WW1 as the suspense builds up so does the willingness to finish the book. It is bound to give you many tears mixed in with the occasional laugh. It is a beautifully written book and I would recommend it to anyone who loves a good read.

    Love this book, just as much as the first one, it was just as sad, and I probably even preferred it to the first, I’ve read the whole series, and I’ve decided that Morris Gleitzman is my FAVOURITE author, he is just genius, I think I cried in every book, so if you don’t like crying whilst reading books, this is definitlely not for you. ‘Then’ is quite an easy read, I would recomend for ages 10+, overall I would rate this book 9/10

    ‘Then’ must be one of the most inspiring books I have ever read. But, before you read this book I would recommend you to read the first book ‘Once’ before going on to read this book and the rest of the series. This book is for anyone at absolutely any age. It is a great book, but sad at some stages. I give it a 10 out of 10.

  8. This series is beautiful and I have read them over and over again. ‘Then’ tells the story of Felix Zelda trying to seek safety. Its the hope Felix has that makes the book inspiring. I recommend this book to 12-15 and would have to rate it a 9/10!

    ‘Then’ tells the inspirational story of Felix and Zelda who are running away from the Nazi’s. The courage an strength that Felix shows is absolutely amazing especially for a boy of his age. The book was actually my sisters but I picked it up, read a few pages and could NOT put it down! I would recommend this book for readers about 12-13 years old and above. I hope you enjoyed the book as much as I did! If you enjoy this book ( I’m sure you will!) read the other three! ‘Before’, ‘After’ and ‘Now’. 9/10!

    I really enjoyed this book. I could never put it down. It really got me thinking about the nazis and the second world war. My favourite character was Felix. He Wasn’t scared even when he was face to face with the nazi’s. Reading this book i felt i was apart of it, experiencing every thing with my own eyes. I would probably recommend this book to people who are into adventures, mystery and learning about history.

  11. – This book is the sequel to the first book (Once). I think that both book are absolutely amazing and powerful but I would recommend to read the first book before you read this one. This book is about when Felix and Zelda flee from a death camp where all Jews are being kept as hitlers plan to run the world. As it becomes harder and harder to run away Felix and Zelda can trust no one and in the end they get to a town and find a lady who is happy to look after the kids but can they trust her?… As money is scarce and so is food almost everyone would hand in jews in return for a reward that could be a lot of money. In the end I would highly recommend this book for 12 -18 year olds as you will be still up in the morning reading it waiting for something to happen that you didn’t think would.

    This book is definately one of the best books i have ever read! It is full of suspence, drama, sad and good times and all of these things make you want to keep reading and never put it down. I thought this book was so good because i couldn’t relate to the characters and it made me ask myself questions like…”If i was in that position, what would i have done?” I reccomend this book to everyone! But I advise you to read the first one (Once) so you understand the idea of the book. Once was the prequel to this book and is just as great so make sure you get that one down so you can read the whole trilogy.

    This is a book about these two Jewish and German children called Zelda and Felix. The book is in World War 2 when Hitler is trying to take over the world. Zelda and Felix are running away from the Nazis, and trying to hide and find a new home. Zelda and Felix are in different families and their parents are all dead.

    The book “Then” which was written by the author Morris Gleitzman is a wonderful book that definitely tugs on a few heartstrings. The emotion, and intense story of Zelda and Felix is unimaginable. Trying to be a normal child was never an option all that was left was to try to survive. Felix was a caring, determined, innocent and persistent person who fights for his life. He looks out for others especially Zelda. War destroys the lives of others and all that is left is survival. It’s never finished until their is only one man left standing. This book tells the story of war, adventure and the ultimate sacrifice that could make or break the chances of survival. The Nazi’s are taking over and are ruining the lives of others.
    I would recommend this book to those who want a story that is powerful, intense and that can make you think twice about what you have rather than what you do not.

    “Then” by Morris Gleitzman is such a good book and it sounds so real it could almost be a true story. “Then” is a very scary, sad and an intense book all in one. My favourite character is probably Felix because he never gives up after all that he has been through. My least favourite part in the book was when one of the main characters die, ( don’t want to tell you which one) because it was such a surprise and I felt bad for Felix. My favourite part of the book was in the chapters where there were Nazis because I enjoyed learning about the war.I think maybe someone who know or wants to learn about war and adventure would love this book.

  23. Mum finally got her hands on Then. So I read it, and finished it at the beach. I can’t believe how good this book was. It was gripping, and with every new page, I felt more and more guilty, because I was supposed to be playing with my sister, but I couldn’t! I couldn’t just leave in the middle of the most important 20 chapters! I love the way that whenever anyone dies, Felix says “Oh.” The only thing I HATE is the ending. It is so unsatisfying and annoying! Either way, I did love this book, and I think that everyone should read it, as long as they are above the age of 12, because there are some gruesome scenes in the novel. I am going to rate this book only ★★★★☆, because I didn’t like the ending.

    This was pretty much the best book I have ever read. It is so good.
    At some times it is a bit emotional and sad. It has really strong words and really makes you feel really sorry for the Jews.
    I have read this book so many times and that is not normal for me. I really love books like that. It also gives you a bit of an idea of what it was like back then for the Jews.
    I felt really sorry for the characters and I was crying while reading it because it was so sad and emotional.
    The Author (Morris Gliezmen) is my favourite author because he uses such strong words and his books are just so entertaining to read.
    Anyway I would recommend this book from people aged 11 and up.
    I give the book 5 out of 5 stars.

    Oh my God. This book put me on the edge of my seat. I cried so much. It is so sad what Jews had to go through. Just innocent kids had to go through all these things, they couldn’t even help being who the are. When you read a book like this, you put yourself in their shoes. It is mighty powerful and emotional. You feel you are living through these tough times with these kids, Zelda and felix. it is pretty graphic in some parts of the book, but thats when you really realize how they were treated. You cry because of the bad things that happen and you smile, from the promises that are mad. i would rate this book 11/10. Age group: 10+.

  37. Then is the Sequel to the powerful book, Once, but is equally powerful. This book picks up from where the first book ended, with narrator Felix and his companion Zelda. Felix and zelda flee from a death-camp–bound boxcar. In the course of their flight there is always the danger of being turned in to the Nazis for a reward, as well as the worry of being shot or starving to death. Being a book lover, Felix takes comfort in the humorous tales of his favorite author, Richmal Crompton, a British writer. These stories provide a ray of hope for felix and Zelda especially Felix. As these give a sense of safety and remind them how wonderful life was before the war.

    This book is so tense your just gripping the pages and almost reading ahead because your so desperate to find out what happens next! It’s just an amazing story and you can’t actually get your head around the thought that this is actually what happened! Hitler was a sick man and so were the Nazis. There were so little people that survived and so many that were killed or tortured. The other books in this series are Once and Now. The order of the series is Once, Then and Now. It actually dosen’t matter what order you read them in because they make sense all the same. But it is good to read them in order as the stories make more sense! I recommend this to Kids 11 and up as it is a really strong story and some may find it a little overwhelming.
    I rate this book 10/10.

    This is by far the best out of the three book series I think most of the drama happens here. I wish I was Felix and I could feel, smell, see, what he is doing I can’t imagine what poor little Zelda’s feeling in this situation small, venerable, clueless she has absolutely no idea whats going on why there hiding on the run and Felix is pretty clueless himself. My favorite character in the book is Gina because she is so kind and caring to take two on the run Jews in when she is at an extremely high risk in doing so. I feel so sorry for the pig, dog, and chooks being taken away like that and I think that that Felix and Zelda are very lucky for not being found out about when the Germans were searching the barn as they were hiding in the hay and not being shot at. I nearly was in tears at the end of this book and was thankful I was not part of a situation like that. The sequel now is no where near as good as the first two but is a great, smart, clever way to finish up the three part series. I highly recommend these books to anyone 10 and up ready for a great read that they can’t put down. 🙂

  54. ust recently I have finished reading a book called “Once & Then” By Morris Gleitzman. Once, and Then, are actually two books, but “Once” is what happens first in the story, and “Then” just continues the story to bring it to an ending.

    This book is mainly about a Jewish child that was in an orphanage, and he escapes to try and find his parents. He encounters many problems on his way, because the story takes place during the time, of when Hitler and the Nazi’s were trying to make a ‘Perfect Race’ and killing people who were Jewish.

    I thoroughly enjoyed knowing about history from the past, and how much some people had to go though on a regular basis, just to survive and keep their families safe.

    Overall, this book is a must read!

Its about how Felix and Zelda try to find new parents too look after them and save them from the Nazis.Dazed with hunger and exhaustion, they seek shelter in the woods, stumble upon a pit filled with machine-gunned children, evade a local man collecting Jews for bounty, and are captured by a farmer who locks them in a barn with her pig. Fortunately, the farmer despises German soldiers somewhat more than she hates Jews, and offers the children refuge, along with a slim chance of survival.Genia, provides a much-needed reference point of decency in this world turned upside down. As all three struggle to survive, the story leads to an almost unbearable ending, described in a voice so gentle and drained of emotion that I had to go back and read it a second time to be sure I hadn’t misunderstood.
    A fabulous book that will leave you wanting more and you will read it again and again to make sure that you read right.
    I rate it a 1000000/10

  60. This book continues from ‘Once’. Its a story about when the Nazis stormed Polland and Felix and Zelda get separated from their parents. their plan is too try and find new parents.
    It was a great read, with a VERY unexpected ending.
    I recommed this book to anyone. It has a bit of everything in it: comedy, drama, war, peace.

  61. There is a sequel to the Morris Gleitzman book Once called Then.
    It is Felix’s journey continued. In this book Felix is still trying to avoid the Nazi’s, hiding his true jewish identity. But one kid threatens to reveal his secret and Felix and his family are in danger. If you’ve read Once and enjoyed it then definetly read the second one. If you read Once but didn’t like it so much, consider reading the next book. It is an enjoyable book i thought and anyone who reads it would have to love the little girl Zelda.

  64. This book is definately one of the best books i have ever read! It is full of suspence, drama, sad and good times and all of these things make you want to keep reading and never put it down. I thought this book was so good because i couldn’t relate to the characters and it made me ask myself questions like…”If i was in that position, what would i have done?” I reccomend this book to everyone! But I advise you to read the first one (Once) so you understand the idea of the book.
