A personal, powerful and resonant account of the Holocaust: discover the new book by beloved children's author Michael Rosen.

Told through prose and poetry, The Missing is the true story of Rosen’s search for his relatives who ‘went missing’ during the Second World War.

Poems old and new are balanced against an immensely readable narrative; both an extraordinary account and a powerful tool for talking to children about the Holocaust.
