Anna / Mia Oberländer ; translated by Nika Knight.

Oberländer, Mia, 1995- (author,, illustrator.). Knight, Nika, (translator.).


"In the sleepy German countryside live the Annas, cursed to be too tall for their small town. Laughably long-limbed and gangly, their bodies refuse to conform with societal norms of delicate femininity, and the trauma of being different ripples across generations. And yet, there may be a blessing to their burden; like the mighty mountains surrounding their town, they find that there is resilience and strength to be gained from their heightened perspective. Drawn with delightful exaggeration and formal inventiveness, Anna is a tongue-in-cheek, modern-day fairy tale about being 'too big' for a narrow-minded world"--Provided by publisher.
