Product Details

Product Description

From Amazon

Ages 8-12. The first and best book in the very popular series describes the ups and downs of a precocious ten-year-old girl. Anastasia loves keeping lists of important information in her green notebook; when she discovers that her mother is pregnant, she instantly adds two new items to her "things I hate" list: "My parents" and "babies." But as the year passes, Anastasia finds that the items on her lists keep moving around; by the time her baby brother is born, the only thing left to hate is liver. An unusually warm, insightful and original portrait of childhood and family life, this is a special and memorable story. Horn Book called Anastasia "an amusing and engaging heroine" and The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books wrote, "the whole book is a delight." --This text refers to the Paperback edition.


"The well-turned phrase amuses, and the unexpected turn of events surprises in a plot that is tightly strung." Booklist, ALA, Starred Review

5.0 out of 5 stars Coming-of-age for smart kids Dec 28 2003
By Zoja
A great beginning to a great series. Nothing sentimental or overdramatic here, just a quirky, smart kid growing up. This is a perfect gift for young, bright girls.

5.0 out of 5 stars You really should read this June 21 2003
By A Customer
This is a really great book. I read it when I was ten, and I thought it was great. Now I'm almost thirteen,but I still love the series! If you're 10,11,12,or 13, in at least one of these books, Anastasia will be your exact age! The characters in the series are totally real, and you can probably find one who's just like you. You'll really love this book AND all the rest in the series, if you're 10 or 110!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Anastasia debut doesn't bring the house down April 4 2003
By A Customer
Anastasia Krupnik doesn't match up to the others. Anastasia is interested in a boy named: brace yourself: Washburn Cummings. Washurn has an afro and listens to Roberta Flack. Hmm. Washburn does not like Anastasia. Anastasia sticks with her goldfish, Frank, and her little green notebook. Somehow, this doesn't match the other books.

The reviewer who said something about the lack of plot of this book (or, at least, the plot keeps changing from chapter to chapter) is right. It is not as well-written as some of the other Anastasia books. I still really liked it, though.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great start to a series Jan. 21 2003
By A Customer
This is a great book for kids. I wouldn't say it's the best in the series, but it is really well-written. It ranks right up there with the Ramona books by Beverly Cleary and the Fudge books by Judy Blume. I had never heard of the Anastasia books until recently, when I bought a bunch of them at a used bookstore. I wish I had known about them when I was a child. I would have loved them. The Anastasia books are great to analyze for character development, which I like to do because I am also a writer. Even her parents are great characters! The only thing that bothers me about this book is the way it deals with another race. Honestly, it enforces a stereotype that makes blacks look really stupid. So, if you are African-American, it may irk you. Even though it is sort of a mild slur, it did bother me a little bit, even though I am not black. Overall, though, it was a good book, and it really makes you want to read more of them.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Book Anastasia Krupnick by Lois Lowry Oct. 24 2002
By A Customer
Would you like to know what a avarage 10- year-old girls life is like? In Anastasia Krupnik a ten year old girl named Anastasia Krupnik deals with a hard life. She has a green notebook that she has a page that has a Things I Hate list and a Things I Love list. At first her Things I Hate list was longer than her things I love list. In the middle of the book she found out that her mom was pregnant. Near the end of the book she starts to try stuff on her Things I Hate list and moved it to her Things I Love list. At the end of the book she finfds out that her grandmother died and the only thing only thing on her Things I Hate list is liver because she tried new things. If you like reading searies about a normal girls life then I would recommend this book and the whole series. You do not have to read the books in order.

3.0 out of 5 stars Anastasia Krupnik Oct. 24 2002
By A Customer
A ten year old girl going through an exciting yet confusing life runs into obsticles that change her life. For instance she falls deeply in love with a crazy boy who has a last name for a first name. Washburn Cummings. He's a crazy boy that got sent home because he came to school with an insane writing on his t-shirt. It leaves you hanging on about everything and makes you want to read on. When she finds out her mom is pregnant she gets mad. Her mom and dad decide she can name her baby brother. The worst name she could think of is Boy Krupnik or Girl Krupnik. When her Grandmother dies she decides that she would name it- in honer of her grandmother- SAM.This is the kind of book that lets you skip chapters and still you know what's going on. It makes you want to keep on reading and then read the series.

Anastasia deals with things 10 year olds deal with everyday and Anastasia grows older with each book so you can enjoy the series whatever age you are, HOW COOL IS THAT! Also in some of the books theres a pesky little brother SAM! So if you have a little brother Anastasia knows what you go through with him! Anastasia Krupnik is an Aswesome series and if you dont read them YOUR MISSING OUT!
