Summary
We're going to look everywhere,' said Anna.And they did.When Anna sets out to find the doll of her dreams, her two younger sisters are eager to help. But it's not easy. This is 1960s Australia and there's no computer or internet yet. This is a time when teachers still write with chalk, cars have no seatbelts, and Mr Whippy sells ice-cream cones for half a penny.Anna and her sisters fill their days with fun, mischief and adventure - like the time Anna glues a block of wood to her middle sister's foot, then worries it will be stuck there forever! They celebrate birthdays and Passover together, cope with friends being mean, and feed peanuts to the bears at the zoo.But through it all, Anna never loses sight of her dream.Inspired by the author's real childhood, this is a warm, funny and fascinating family story from the author of The Family with Two Front Doors
Summary
Nomi - the little girl from The Family with Two Front Doors - is now Nana Nomi, standing in her kitchen in Melbourne, a long way from Poland, a long time after losing much of her family in the holocaust. Her granddaughter Anna gets into all sorts of scrapes - like glueing her baby sister's foot to a plank of wood (then worrying she'll have to live like that forever). Anna and her family celebrate Passover, and birthdays and trips to the zoo, they also deal with prejudice, and other more serious sides of life. And through it all, Anna is on the hunt for the most beautiful doll she has ever seen...
