Anastasia Krupnik by Lois Lowry
I was reading bookshelves of doom and she mentioned this book as being one of her favorites: one of the best books of all time, in fact. Since I was going to the library anyway, I picked it up.
It's wonderful! It's written for children. It's hilarious & there is a lot in there that children might miss. I love Anastasia and I love her parents. I had the hardest time finding a time choosing a phrase -- there are so many good ones. I settled for this one because many of them seemed to require a bit of context.
