Jean Little''s classic celebrates its 40th anniversary
with a new look for a new generation!
Nine-year-old Anna has always been the clumsy one in the family
- somehow she can never do anything right. She bumps into tables,
and she can''t read the chalkboard at school. Her perfect brothers
and sisters call her "Awkward Anna."
When Papa announces that the family is moving from Germany to
Canada - he''s worried about what the Nazis'' rise to power will
bring - Anna''s heart sinks. How can she learn English when she
can''t even read German properly?
But when the Soldens arrive in Canada, Anna learns that there is
a reason for her clumsiness. And suddenly, wonderfully, her whole
world begins to change, especially when new friends at her special
school help her stand up to bullies who call her names.
A truly heartwarming story, From Anna will resonate
with any child who has ever felt left out. This 40th anniversary
edition includes an Introduction by Katherine Paterson and and
Afterword by Jean Little herself.
