Summary (From the publisher):

Kully knows some things you donít learn at school. She knows how to roll a cigarette and pack a suitcase. She knows that cars are more dangerous than lions. She knows you canít enter a country without a passport or visa. And she knows that she and her parents canít go back to Germany again Ė her fatherís books are banned there. But there are also things she doesnít understand, like why there might be war Europe Ė just that there are men named Hitler, Mussolini and Chamberlain involved. Little Kully is far more interested where their next meal will come from and the ladies who seem to buzz around her father.

Meanwhile she and her parents roam through Europe. Her mother would just like to settle down, but as her restless father struggles to find a new publisher, the three must escape from country to country as their visas expire, money runs out and hotel bills mount up.
