Anna was four years old when Fynn, then only 16 himself, found her wandering round London's Docklands one foggy night in the 1930s. Badly neglected and abandoned by her parents, he took her home to be cared for by his own family. The impact of this extraordinary child on Fynn, his friends and the people in their neighbourhood was to be immense. Nobody who met Anna could remain the same: this intelligent, lively, precocious chatterbox had an outlook on life which completely undercut adult pretensions and illusions. Anna's influence continues today. Anyone dipping into her thought-processes falls under the spell of her luminous innocence, wisdom and intimate relationship 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".
