Anna Karenina appears to have the perfect life. Young and beautiful, she lives in a fashionable house in Moscow with her respected husband and their young son. But Anna is deeply unhappy. Her older husband bores her, and she misses the lively city she grew up in. Then Count Vronsky, a dashing young officer, invites her to dance at a ball.
Will Anna protect the comfortable life she has, or risk it all for forbidden love? Can Pierre finally find happiness, and will Natasha decide where her heart truly lies?

I loved this adaptation and illustration. Maybe it was set for small kids, but I really enjoyed it as an adult. I have always wanted to read Anna Karenina but was so afraid to commit to it due to its length. I am so happy I read this adaptation.
This book definitely hit the mark it was supposed to. I'm in AP Lit right now and I used this to understand Anna Karenina as its required reading, and. it was so much easier to understand. I loved the illustrations, and the book was very easy to follow. Lifesaver!
A super easy to read and illustrated adaption of the Russian Classic Anna Karenina! This was a short and sweet version that captured some of the main events and points of the original story. It’s a great read for anyone looking for a simplified version and even has gorgeous artwork in it! *Thanks Netgalley and Sweet Cherry Publishing for sending me an arc in exchange for an honest review*
Thank you to Netgalley and Sweet Cherry Publishing for this accessible version of a much loved classic. I've promised myself time and time again that I will read Anna Karenina but have been put off by its length. Although this version is intended for children, I have to say that as an adult I thoroughly enjoyed it and would definitely look out for other Sweet Cherry Classics.
