Publisher's Description

Berlin, spring 1948. Teenage cousins Erich and Katarina are just trying to survive in a city still devastated by World War 2 when the Soviets blockade the city isolating its citizens—and starving them—behind the Iron Curtain. But the Americans have food, so Erich sneaks inside a U.S. cargo plane…where he is caught by a sympathetic American sergeant who tries to befriend him. Though Erich has plenty of reasons to resent this man, in the end he must decide—should he cling to bitterness or learn to forgive?

Author Bio

Robert Elmer lives in the Seattle area with his wife and their little white dog, Farragut, who is named for the famous admiral. He is the author of over fifty books, most of them for younger readers (but some for grown-ups, as well). He enjoys sailing in the San Juan Islands, exploring the Pacific Northwest with his wife, and spending time with their three kids – along with a growing number of little grandkids.

Editorial Reviews

'With a mild Christian theme of forgiveness, Candy Bombers is suitable for boys and girls, Christian and non-Christian. The book exposes readers to some of the prejudicial political sentiments of the times and would make good extra-curricular reading for tween homeschoolers.'

Author/Artist Review

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  I wrote this series for kids who love fast-paced adventure -- like I do. But there's so much more to it than that. Loyalty, faith, tragedy, courage... When you read these stories you'll discover real people wrestling with real-life faith issues. After all, they're based on real events! So in the bargain you'll learn some history, too, and find how God is faithful through the years, from generation to generation.

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  I guess you can call these "Christian spy stories for kids," and I grew up on a lot of these kinds of adventures. So it was only natural that I'd eventually write about Berlin -- and life behind the Berlin Wall. By the way, you'll learn more about the real-life Candy Bomber in the back of the book. This first book in the series was inspired by him.

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  Hang on! These adventures will take you for a ride, and you'll see what it was like to live in a divided city, behind the hated wall that divided all of Germany during the Cold War years. With boy and girl characters from several generations, there's plenty of adventure for everyone.
