Very quick chapter book for middle grade. I enjoyed Anastasia‘s voice and felt she was very real. She interacted with her family in such a way that they took her seriously, which doesn‘t often happen in books. I may have to read another in the series, even though I was just checking this off my #PaperbackCrush list!

Fantasy books are *obviously * totally magical, but what about stories of relatable kids dealing with relatable things? That‘s what we‘ve got with Lois Lowry‘s 1979 Anastasia Krupnik... but the title character is dealing with those relatable things in hilarious, cheeky, sometimes dramatic style. Coming back to Anastasia‘s story for my podcast brought me right back to childhood! Writer Kayleen Schaefer joins me to discuss. Link to listen in bio! 🎧

Anastasia is appalled to learn her family is moving to #thesuburbs. So embarrassing and unoriginal! 😂 I love her. #timbittunes

Bookwormjillk I used to love her! The memories! 9mo
ApplesandSpindles Lol! I don't usually associate Lois Lowry with plucky heroines with adorable plots! 9mo
TheKidUpstairs Oh my gosh, I'd forgotten about her! 9mo

#getmovin #thisisme

Finding yourself in fiction is a great feeling when you‘re a kid. I thought I was either Anne of Green Gables or Anastasia Krupnik. Probably Anastasia, I‘m a little more cynical than Anne! #thisisme now, add a side of kids, a fascination with weird and old stuff, and bolshiness dressed permanently in tshirts and jeans. (I won‘t mention books, you know there‘s books!)

merelybookish This is awesome! 1y

AlaMich I most definitely know of Lois Lowry but I have never heard of these books. 🤔 1y
Centique @AlaMich oh man you missed out! She was this smart 10yo girl living in NYC, a bit quirky and venting her frustrations. Nice to have a character that wasn‘t always sweet or plucky. 1y
Cinfhen Love this!! 1y
Centique @Cinfhen 😘💕 1y
batsy Love this post! I'm going to have to read this 🙂 1y

Some of my favorite posts involve reliving my childhood reads. This one was extra special, because I had forgotten all about Anastasia. #publishedinthe1970s #jubilantjuly

L_auren Loved Anastasia, Fudge, and Ramona. Great picks :) 2y

There are so many characters I #lovedatage10. I could have gone with Anne of Green Gables, the girls from the Babysitters Club, Ramona Quimby, anyone from a Judy Blume book. But Anastasia Krupnik doesn't get enough love. So I picked her. #17booklove @jess.how

Born.A.Reader I still have my copy of this and reread it on occasion. Absolutely loved it -and you're right, she doesn't get the credit she deserves! 😊😊 3y
rachellayown I forgot about this book! 3y

Anastasia is the best -- funny, smart, strong, and kind.

Starting to build a library for my daughter of my old favorites. This is the first of many Lois Lowry books I can't wait to add.
