An odd book, go for Goony Bird Green instead!

What disappointed you about Anastasia Krupnik?

This one, not the first in the Anastasia series, is sort of an odd choice-- even odder that you can't get the other Anastasia books on tape. It is well read, but the material is fairly peculiar--not quite funny, with a cranky and rather unlikable main character. Lois Lowry is a genius and does everything well, so the writing is fine. But she has much better work, i.e. Goony Bird Green, and those are exceptionally well performed and available as audio books. I'd totally recommend those instead.

Did C. J. Critt do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

Yes all the voicves are distinct and well done

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Anastasia Krupnik?

A few of the things she hates could have been cut. I'm not sure anyone needs to hear quite so much about what a 10 year old girl hates.

Any additional comments?

Still plenty of humor and spark-- just not this author's best work, and at her best she is brilliant.
