Anastasia tiene problemas (Anastasia, Ask Your Analyst)by Lois Lowry, Salustiano Maso, Gerardo Amechazurra, G. Amechazurra
Anastasia's seventh-grade science project becomes almost more than she can handle, but her brother Sam, age three, and a bust of Freud, aid her nobly.
Publishers Weekly - Publishers WeeklyGr 3-7-A 13-year-old girl growing up in the suburbs of Boston, Anastasia Krupnik is looking for ways to make an impact on the world around her. She likes her gym teacher, Wilhelmina Willoughby, and wants her approval but can't seem to master climbing the ropes during gym class. Thus, deeming her recently widowed uncle as dreamy as Rhett Butler in Gone with the Wind, Anastasia decides to play matchmaker. All of her attempts to be noticed (by anyone at all) meet with hilarious results. Alonso's illustrations provide a comical balance to the story. The chapters are short and can be easily read by older readers, while also providing good read-aloud material for teachers and librarians to use with younger readers. This Spanish translation of the immensely popular Anastasia series (Yearling Books) is recommended for all collections.Mercedes Smith, Bishop Kenny H.S., Jacksonville, FL Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
CriticasGr 4-6-Anastasia's seventh-grade science project almost does her in. However, her three-year-old brother, Sam and her analyst-a bust of Sigmund Freud-get her through. Her misadventures and insights are just the prescription for girls on the brink of adolescence. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
