Excerpt

Anna On The Farm

Illustrated by Diane de Groat

Anna is thrilled when she receives an invitation to leave hot, sticky Baltimore and visit her aunt and uncle on their farm, where she'll be able to go barefoot, swim in the pond, and drink fresh-squeezed lemonade. But when she arrives, she's greeted by an unpleasant surprise: her uncle's nephew, Theodore, who delights in teasing her mercilessly about her city ways. Anna refuses to let Theodore get the best of her, though, and in a series of suspenseful adventures and hilarious mishaps she proves that she isn't just a city slicker, after all. This lively sequel to Anna All Year Round is a gathering of humorous, heartwarming episodes filled with both the delights and difficulties that have always accompanied the journey of growing up.

Reviews

"Anna is a character filled with life and energy whose further adventures would be most welcome."
Kirkus Reviews

"A good choice for easy-chapter-book readers, especially those who have met Anna before."
—ALA Booklist

"Rollicking fun and gives a great glimpse of life in pre-World War I America. . . . A good next step for readers graduating from 'American Girl' stories."
School Library Journal

"Once again, Hahn defies nostalgia with both the immediacy and the honesty of her up-close, present tense telling."
Horn Book
