Plot summary[edit]

Reason for writing the novel[edit]

On her website Lowry states the reason for writing the novel as:

"Sam was born when Anastasia was ten, and for a long time he existed only in the books about her. But kids liked him. Maybe he reminded them of their own little brothers. So at the request of young readers, I gave Sam his own series."
