3.0 out of 5 stars The writing is wonderful but the characters are annoying!
Lois Lowry is one of the best writers for children around, but I find Sam to be one of the most annoying characters around. He is simply too precocious to be at all believable, as was his sister Anastasia before him! In fact, all the neighbors are really too clever, interesting, well educated and understanding to ring too true to me. Maybe there really is a...

I really loved this book. My favorite part was when he found out that the towel he had was his dads gym towel waiting to be washed. I would recommend this book to everyone!

This review is from: See You Around, Sam! (Hardcover)
Lois Lowry is one of the best writers for children around, but I find Sam to be one of the most annoying characters around. He is simply too precocious to be at all believable, as was his sister Anastasia before him! In fact, all the neighbors are really too clever, interesting, well educated and understanding to ring too true to me. Maybe there really is a neighborhood like Sam's someplace, but I doubt it. That said, I always read each new Lowry book and do find myself enjoying them, and I'm sure most readers would too.

By A Customer
This review is from: See You Around, Sam! (Hardcover)
Sam Krupnik, the precocious younger brother of whimsical teenager Anastasia, has decided to run away to Alaska to "lie around in a pile". His mother won't let him wear his plastic fangs in the house. Sam concludes that in Alaska, people will be more tolerant of his fangs. As he roams the neighborhood, searching for food and supplies for his journey, readers will love following him- that is, if they don't fall over laughing first.
