A beloved Canadian favourite is available again with a fresh new cover and classic interior illustrations for its 50th anniversary.

Nine-year-old Anna has always been the clumsy one in the family. Somehow she can never do anything right. She bumps into tables, and she can't read the blackboard at her school. Her perfect brothers and sisters call her “Awkward Anna.”

When Papa announces that the family is moving from Germany to Canada — after the disappearance of some Jewish neighbours he can see what the Nazis' rise to power will bring — Anna's heart sinks. How can she learn English when she can't even read German properly?

But when the Soldens arrive in Canada, Anna learns that there is a reason for her clumsiness. And suddenly, wonderfully, her whole world begins to change. Especially when her new friends in a special class at school help her stand up to some bullies who call her names.

A truly heartwarming story of an underdog who prevails; it is impossible not to cheer for prickly, determined, wonderful Anna.

Bonus content includes an introduction by Katherine Paterson, an afterword by the author, plus reader discussion questions and activities.

JEAN LITTLE has been called “a Canadian treasure.” She wrote more than fifty books including some of Canada’s best-loved children’s books, such as From Anna, Listen for the Singing, Mine for Keeps, Orphan at my Door and Pippin the Christmas Pig. Many of her books feature children who are orphaned, have a disability, or face other challenges. Jean’s books have been translated into a dozen languages and have won many awards, including a Canadian Library Association Book of the Year award, the Ruth Schwartz Award, the Canada Council Literature Prize, and the Boston Globe Horn-Book Honor Book Award. She was honoured with the Vicky Metcalf Award for her body of work, the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal and the Order of Canada and was nominated for the international Astrid Lindgren Award eight times. Jean died in 2020.

“Jean Little has again created realistic characters whose interactions make this a touching story with which children will readily identify.” — School Library Journal

“In Canada [Anna] comes into her own. A moving, honest and strong story.” — Michelle Landsberg’s Guide to Children’s Books

“Moving is never easy, especially when you're a little 9-year-old girl moving from the tumult of living in Nazi Germany to Canada in the 1930s. And if you're clumsy and your older brothers and sisters all call you "Awkward Anna" as well, it's even worse. In award-winning writer Jean Little's poignant novel, From Anna, readers are sure to be touched by Anna Solden's struggles with her new home in Canada, the unfamiliar language of English, and the realization that, in fact, there is a reason for her being such an awkward child. When it’s discovered that Anna needs glasses and that her clumsiness is actually the result of being visually impaired, Anna’s life changes completely. Suddenly her brothers and sisters see Anna in a new light and try to make amends for being unkind. From Anna is one of Jean Little’s most popular novels, and it’s little wonder. Readers will also want to check out the sequel, Listen for the Singing.” — Jeffrey Canton
