Product Description

Review

‘The explosive individuality of Anna is not sentimentally touching but sometimes almost frightening. I hope that a new edition will introduce a new generation to this formidable and astonishing figure.’ Dr Rowan Williams, Archbishop of Canterbury

From the Back Cover

Fynn found Anna wandering the streets of East London in the 1930s and, unable to discover where she lived, took her home to live with his mother.

Fynn would spend his evening talking and playing with Anna; they chatted about life, particularly science and mathematics, and Anna would tell him about her conversations with 'Mister God', to whom she poured out all her thoughts and troubles. Anna's innocent but insightful world- view caused Fynn to reassess his own.

'Mister God, this is Anna'-an all-time classic – is the story of Anna's short life and the liberating effect she had on her friend Fynn.

"Here is a book which is a pearl of great price. It will mean everything . Truth, beauty, and goodness, to those who understand… a heavenly book, rooted in earth."
TREVOR HUDDLESTON, 'Guardian'

"Beautifully written; most moving. The book is superbly produced to offset Papas' brilliant drawings".
COLIN MORRIS

Format: Paperback
I've never read a book that has been so heart warming, so thought provoking and provides such a simplistic and innocent view of life and love. I've also never read a book that has reduced me to tears.
The true story is fantastic and I defy you to read this and not be uplifted by Anna's persona. We're all nothing but dots at the end of the day (you'll have to read the book). I loved her impish nature and her questioning of when the River Thames becomes known as the River Thames. I don't know the answer to this question but I know the answer isn't 3.
If I achieved half the happiness in my life, as Anna did I'd be very pleased.
I don't believe in God but I do believe in love, which is all this book is about.

Format: Paperback
This is a delightful book about an inquisitive little girl who saw a lot of things in a very different way than most of us are taught to see. It doesn't matter one bit if you agree with any of Anna's unusual points of view, it's just so refreshingly interesting. (Although you often end up thinking "Humm, I've never thought of it that way, but she does have a point!")
The author says he was lucky to have met Anna. I think she was lucky to have found him. He recognised something rare and beautiful in Anna, and had the intelligence to allow it to develop and grow.
This is classed as a spiritual book - which it no doubt is - but it is absolutely not a "preachy" book. Suitable for thinkers of all ages, children and adult alike.

Format: Paperback
I have known Christian youth leaders, Wiccan high priests, and "ordinary" people who have all read and loved this book.
I first read it 10 years ago, and i re-read it often. I'm on my third copy, because it tends to go "missing", but it's worth re-buying every time.
This book will encourage anyone to get out of their box, and at times, will shake you to the core. A 5 year old taught me more in an hour or two than some people have in years.

I first read this book when I was eleven years old, in 1981. It tells a heart warming (and at times more than a little heart rending) true story of a working class man (Fynn) who meets, befriends and takes home a small girl (Anna).
For three and a half years Anna lived with Fynn, his mother and younger brother until her death in a accident. The book deals with the developing relationship between them and Anna's insights into the world and Christianity in particular. Anna seems to have wise far beyond her years, her analogy of the organized church being like a 'Keep Off The Grass' sign is remarkably apt and is something that the modern church should take on board.
Even if you're not a Christian (I'm not, I am a practising Wiccan) the book is well worth a read as it deals more with the nature or spirituality accross all faiths than with any one faith, Christianity is just the vehicle it travels in. If you are a parent (or grandparent, uncle, aunt or whatever) of a child over 10, then I reccomend you give this book to the child and be ready for discussions about the nature of faith and religeon.

There is no way that someone could read this book and not enjoy it. It is beautiful, touching and tender and almost impossible not to fall in love with both Anna and Fynn. I must have read this book 50 times and I still cry every time I get to the end. It is a really fantastic book.

the fact that this is a true story really struck me, as i didn't know this until after i'd read it. this is an amazing book, really thought-provoking. alternately emotional, dramatic and hilarious. anna is such a complex character, you will want to read this again and again. this is a particularly cute edition, imported from america, which is a handy pocket-size.
