‘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 Inside Flap
From the moment Anna and Fynn locked eyes, their times together were filled with delight and discovery. In her completely frank and honest way, Anna had an astonishing ability to ask--and answer--life's largest questions, and to feel the purpose of being. You see, Anna had a very special friendship with Mr. God.

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.
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.
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.
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.

Cleverly written and if all accounts of Anna really true just too much for me to accept.
Doesn't take anything away from the quality of the writing.
