Anastasia likes keeping lists of things she loves and things she hates. While liver remains on her hate list throughout the year, almost everything else hops from one list to the other, depending on Anastasia's mood at the moment. When Anastasia's parents tell her she can name her new baby brother, Anastasia spends a lot of time thinking up the worst name imaginable for this unwanted addition to her life. Anastasia's humorous antics and creative lists will keep readers entertained throughout the book. Look for other Anastasia titles that follow this first book in the series. Category: Humor; Realistic Fiction. Grade Level: Intermediate (4th-6th grade). 1979, Houghton Mifflin Company. Ages 9 to 12.
