Review:
Anna's Papa is a bookbinder who is losing work to big binderies that use glue instead of careful stitches. Papa gets an order from his best client who threatens to take his business elsewhere if the work is not completed within three days. Already rushed, the book binding is further delayed by the arrival of Anna's new baby brother. Anna, competent and caring, steps in to help her harried parents. Engaging, old-fashioned watercolors, lovingly depict Anna and her world.
