THE TOUCHING TRUE STORY THAT WON THE HEARTS OF MILLIONS OF READERS AROUND THE WORLD! Anna was only four years old when Fynn found her on London's fog-shrouded docks. He took her back to his mother's home, and from that first moment, their times together were filled with delight and discovery. Anna had an astonishing ability to ask--and to answer--life's largest questions. Her total openness and honesty amazed all who knew her. She seemed to understand with uncanny certainty the purpose of being, the essence of feeling, the beauty of love. You see, Anna had a very special friendship with Mister God. . . .

What at first appears to be a heartwarming story about the rescue of a delightfully intelligent child from a life of abuse and deprivation quickly turns into a cockeyed religious diatribe. This is a highly manipulative book that should be kept out of the reach of children until they're able to make up their own minds about things. Only the fact that the story is so unbelievable renders it less dangerous; no five year old child, regardless of her precocity would have come up with such abstruse philosophical ideas as those worked out by Anna.
Sydney George Hopkins, a.k.a. Fynn is too clever by half, but I wish he had honestly presented the book as a novel rather than pretending that it was a "true story".
