Publisher's Summary

At last, Sam, Anastasia Krupnik's irrepressible little brother, gets a chance to tell his own story. From his first days at the hospital, through his Terrible Twos, to his first days at nursery school, we see what Sam is really like. But things are never quite what they seem.

In the delivery room, Sam's first words, "Don't drop me," are heard only as, "Waaaaahhhh!" And even though he has a perfectly logical explanation for flushing his sister's goldfish down the toilet, no one understands. From training pants to moving day to nursery school, Sam continually tries to unravel the mysteries of the world at large, facing each crisis and adventure head on and responding with his own brand of humor, candor, and naive insight.

In All About Sam, Lois Lowry has created the younger brother only Anastasia Krupnik could have. Anastasia fans will be quick to welcome this new voice into the series, and Sam will no doubt gain many new fans of his own.

    "Most Fun"

    Really, this is one of my favorite books and the story that got me addicted to Lois Lowry when I was in 5th grade. It is wonderfully hilarious, and so imaginative. Without this book, I never would have found "The Giver."

    Lowry is brilliant.

    "Charming and Adorable!"

    Let me state first that I'm way too old for books like this, but I've found a great deal to admire in young adult and juvenile fiction lately. On more than one occasion in the first part of the book, I thought about stopping, but I am so glad that I didn't! Sam's escapades are just fun -- and maybe they take you back to a time when you misunderstood terms and phrases that adults use that just don't make sense to a literal thinker! Sam is a real charmer!

    "Just plain fun"

    I'd read this years ago and bought it for my eight year old grandson. He laughed out loud while listening to it. It kept him amused on a great part of a family trip. The views of a baby and preschooler make for great amusement and giggles.
