About the Author: Hugh Brewster

Being able to create books about history is a dream job for me since I ve always been enthralled by history When I was growing up in Georgetown, Ontario, our house was just around the corner from the town library And I haunted its children s section reading sometimes four or five books a week Historical fiction titles by writers like Geoffrey Trease and Rosemary Sutcliffe were particular favour

    As you might ve seen me whine in previous history book reviews MY LIBRARY IS SUCKTASTIC WHEN IT COMES TO RUSSIA I don t even know what they think Russia s not a real country I mean it s just a tiiiiny blimp on the map so BAH who needs to stock Russian books in libraries WELL BOO I am a writer I am writing a Russian fantasy I NEED FACTS hyperventilates quietly So I m reduced to picture books intended for, like, um10yos So from a writers perspective, this book is 100% useless.From just a I am a nerd and history is interesting lemme read it all this book is 100% wonderful.It is, weirdly, 90% a picture album Didn t see THAT coming did ya HUH But basically each of the 64 pages is full of photos of the Romanov royal family Right from when Anastasia is born to when she s ummurdered Like we leave all the doors open to indicat MAYBE SHE ESCAPED But, dudes She was murdered Although I actually find stuff about her REALLY HARD to read because knowing their insanely wonderful lives just ended by being shoved in a room in someone s house and all shot LEMME CRY THIS IS NOT A NICE BOOK HISTORY SUCKS, OMG composes self THINGS I LEARNED WHILE READING THIS BOOK Anastasia was a bit of a wild child Making faceshating mathswriting cheeky letters So basically awesome That all the photos of them growing up pre world war one looked pretty much like any other European family SO IDEK I GUESS RUSSIANS ARE NORMAL PEOPLE TOO Anastasia had a thing for cameras It s like 1900s selfies, okay It was a thing I m like 99% sure Raspuin was doing a little than just laying on hands for healing with Anastasia s mother, Alexandra I cALL OUT HANKY PANKY THERE Just before the Romanov s were murdered, all the girls had sewn jewels into their corsets in hopes that they d escape and then have money to live off Well, these ended up acting as ARMOUR when they were shot, so it took a lot to actually kill them Ergo, jewellery can also double as a safety vest justsayin When the war started the two oldest sisters, Olga and Tatiana, trained as nurses Speaking of Olga and Tatiana and Marielike, why even the heck doesn t anyone care about them It s all Anastasia this and Anastasia that Gee She had SISTERS you know Although, I mean, I GUESS, the reason Anastasia gets all the attention is her possible survival , although that got debunked when comparing blood samples of the recovered missing princess to the actual Romanov line She wasn t Ergo the entire Anastasia movie is a LIE and I don t even know what to do about my childhood any It s ruined.So basically READ THIS FOR THE PHOTOS You don t even have to read much It s like mostly photos and it s so interesting and personal and really shows you what the Romanovs did and how they spent their time and THEY WERE SO CUTE WHEN THEY WERE BABIES As the book goes on, the photos start getting hand painted, which is horrific But historical, I guess I mean, stahp hand painting things, humans I m sure your hat wasn t that obscene shade of pink because it s not even possible The black and white photos are the amazing ones And it s just kinda amazing that all these photos EXIST HISTORY PHOTOGRAPHED WOOT.I am sad that everyone died though Oops Spoilers But it is history so ya know

    Achingly sad and yet beautiful to see these intimate pictures of The Romanov family from their photos of private moments to pictures of their life in captivity in Tobolsk, this was touching.

    POTENTIAL SPOILERS Even though I read this, GoodReads is insisting I didn t Huh Oh well There s really not much I can say since it s really a collection of photos than anything else, but I love Anastasia Romanova so I thought it was cute Some of the info might be slightly outdated however as it was published back in 1996, before we knew as much as we do now about the Romanovs.

    The book I discovered one bright and sunny afternoon in 6th grade that started my lifelong adoration for OTMA, the last Grand Duchesses of Imperial Russia.

  5. says:

    An excellent collection of photos taken during the time Anatasia was growing up with her family in Russia 1901 through Russian Revolution and the murder of her family The photos were obtained from Soviet Russia Archives.

  6. says:

    It had a bunch of facts and pictures from Anastasia s family.

    Knowing how this would end, it was bittersweet looking at all the beautiful family photos and touching letters written by Anastasia, especially to her father Apparently Anastasia s mother and Anastasia were avid photography buffs and took their cameras everywhere There are several photos in the book of Anastasia and her mother holding their cameras Anastasia even took what must have been one of the first selfies by taking a photo of herself in the mirror The photographs in this book as well as quotes, letters and drawings by Anastasia and her sisters give us an intimate glimpse into the family activities of the Romanovs who seemed a very close and loving family other than the expected sibling rivalry and occasional spat between Anastasia and her oldest sister, Olga.Before reading this book, children need to be prepared with a short history of the Russian Revolution of 1917 For children who don t know about the assassination of the Romanov family, what seems a fairy tale book of Anastasia and the Russian royal family will end brutally with an artist s rendering of the assassination Following all the lovely photographs of the Romanov family and their seemingly charmed lives, the last few pages of the book when the family is under house arrest and finally murdered will be abrupt and shocking for unprepared children I wouldn t recommend this book to children younger than age ten sixth graders or children who don t already know about the assassination of the Russian royal family.As a little girl I loved fairy tales and royalty I even wrote a letter to Queen Elizabeth when I was ten asking for her autograph and still have the reply from her lady in waiting at Buckingham Palace Quite naturally at this time, I was also fascinated by the story of Anastasia I remember my mother taking me to see the Ingrid Bergman movie in 1956 when it was still believed that Anastasia might have escaped and was living in Germany as Anna Anderson Anna Anderson died in 1984 at age 87 in the United States, her claims to being the Grand Duchess Anastasia having been denied by surviving relatives of the royal family and the German courts.I would recommend this book to anyone interested in Anastasia and the Romanov family mainly because of the beautiful photographs and to middle grade readers, sixth grade and up, as long as they are forewarned about the tragic ending No matter how much the revolution was justified by hundreds of years of oppression of the Russian people, nothing prepares you for the assassination of a family.

    Tricky stuff to work from, the story of Anastasia By sharing all these photographs of the tsar s family, Brewster manages to convey that they were a family just like any other, making goofy faces for the camera, riding bikes, misspelling words in letters to friends, and also that they were unlike anyone else, since most of us don t have one palace, let alone several.The book deals pretty well with both the assassination of the family, and with the story of Anna Anderson, and with the finding of the mass grave I m not a fan of monarchy or empires, and I certainly don t blame the Russians for rebelling, but it s a sad end.Library copy
