Overview

In the far north of Finland a lonely, young princess longs for a friend her own age of seven, but has little chance of finding any seven-year-old in such a remote castle. Playing by herself in the fields behind the castle, Princess Anna suddenly discovers she is lost. The castle is gone and a strange child is handing her a strange flower. Should she embrace the change or fear it? How can she get back home? What are the tests she must pass?

At the same time, on another planet, a child prince, whose father died before he can remember, longs to know more than the stories of his father’s heroism and bravery. He wants to meet his father, but can he? Are such dreams possible on the Somewhere Else Planet? In the Otherwhere? Anywhere?

Can children’s dreams come true? Is making a wish come true complex or simple? What skills must a child acquire to realize a dream?

Anna and the Otherwhere is a unique, colorfully-illustrated fantasy from the days before the recorded history of Finland when some still knew how to use innate abilities that have now all but been forgotten. This timeless tale of longing, love and learning will delight all those from nine to ninety.

Meet the Author

Jancis Dienes is a teacher, tutor, mother and grandmother. She was born in England, has lived in Australia and now lives in Clearwater Florida.
At an early age, her English mother and Hungarian father exposed her to the richness of European art galleries and monuments, which imbued her with a love of art. They also introduced her to the wild, barren beauty of the wind-blown Hebridean Islands in Scotland, which gave he an awe of the elements.
At a young age she was writing poetry which was published in the school magazine.
Her family moved from England to Australia in 1960 where she majored in philosophy at The University of Adelaide. Later she earned a Post Graduate Diploma in Education at the University of Sydney and taught Grade School in Australia for many years. Her classrooms were bursting with children’s creative writing, paintings, music and drama. Her real love has always been poetry, writing and art.
She now lives in Clearwater, Florida, writing poems and stories and tutoring children in reading. She is a total romantic and loves fairies, roses, Chopin and Mozart.

Carita Lewis was born in Helsinki, Finland. She started drawing as soon as she was able to hold a pencil in her hand. At sixteen she received her first set of oil colors as a gift. That was the beginning of her first oil paintings. She likes to create colorful, vivid images that bring beauty and happiness to viewers of all ages and place a smile on everyone's face!
She currently lives in Delaware.

Jancis met Carita when Carita decided something had to be done with her paintings. She asked Jancis if she could weave them into a story. Jancis mused over the paintings for some time in a quiet room in downtown Clearwater and the story Anna and The Otherwhere was born. It was as if the story were waiting to emerge from its hiding place in the paintings.
Through her Hungarian father Jancis feels a deep connection to Hungary and a fascination with the possible historical connection between Hungary and Finland.
Since Carita is Finnish, Jancis just knew that Anna and The Otherwhere had to be a story set in ancient Finland. The story emerged from the paintings as a romantic fantasy to entice the reader to think about the possibility of abilities and realities not usually spoken of in ordinary conversation.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this story with the wonderful pictures whic

    I thoroughly enjoyed this story with the wonderful pictures which took me to a satisfying world of fantasy ,magic and romance.
    I can't wait to read it to a child or have the child read it for themselves. I would recommend it for adults too as it took me back to a time when the world was not solid but one inhabited by fantasy and kindness.
