Violence: Mild Violence,Violence: War/Harsh Realities of War

World War II is over, and Freddie, a veteran, decides not to return to America, but to travel around Europe as a ventriloquist. The problem is no one wants to hire him, as his act is mediocre at best. Then Freddie is visited by the ghost of Avrom Amos, a Jewish child who saved Freddie's life during the war. Avrom offers Freddie a deal: he'll make Freddie a star if Freddie helps track down the Nazi who killed him. Winner of the 2008 Sydney Taylor Award.
