Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Vicki Foote
Anna's life as a little girl in Africa is filled with unusual and unique family adventures. She lives with her extended family of grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, and her two baby brothers, Double and Trouble. Koko, a parrot, also has a role in the happenings. Four related stories or chapters are told in this book that is one of several published books about Anna. We find out about harmattan winds in the first story in which Anna is unhappy because their garden is dry due to the winds and lack of rain. When she finds that her neighbors do not have enough water, she finds a way to share. The next story is about some amusing mischief that her twin brothers get into. Anna is going to visit Canada in another story, and there is much ado about her having some warm clothes. The last story revolves around Anna's concern about leaving her family to go to Canada. Her fears are absolved when her family unites to show their love for her. Anna's character is sweet and goodhearted, and her family is loving and kind. Occasionally, native dialect is used, and the reader will learn about some of the African customs and family life. This is a pleasant story for children who are reading chapter books on their own. Reviewer: Vicki Foote
Kirkus Reviews

The amazing African world introduced in the first two Anna Hibiscus books has turned from lush to dry and dusty. It's harmattan season, when the wind blows sand from the Sahara Desert, nearly Christmas time. Soon Anna Hibiscus will travel all the way to Canada to visit her other grandmother and see snow. Four linked stories describe incidents from daily life: careful dry-season bathing with buckets, family nap time, shopping for cold-weather clothes in a modern department store and a more satisfying traditional stall and the week Anna's family seems to have forgotten her—until they produce their going-away surprises. As in other titles in the series, these gentle stories are illustrated on nearly every page with Tobia's gray-scale sketches. Accurate cultural details will appeal to readers curious about life in an unfamiliar world. This suburban family compound in a generic sub-Saharan country reflects the author's own Nigerian childhood. The third-person narration moves briskly, with plenty of dialogue. Novice readers may find unfamiliar dialect challenging: "In dis your compound you throw water for ground," a peddler selling fruit outside the family home complains, pointing out that while Anna's family uses leftover wash water to water the plants, city children have no water at all. Once again, Anna demonstrates a growing social consciousness. Readers may begin Anna's story here; they will certainly want to go back to read earlier stories and will look forward to learning what happens next. (Fiction. 5-9)
