    One thought on “The Anti-Muffins”

    1. First published in 1980 as an independent piece of short fiction, and part of Madeleine l'Engle's Austin Family series, The Anti-Muffins should really be considered as the "missing chapter" of the first book, Meet the Austins (left out of the published novel in 1960, or rather, it was deemed prudent by the publisher not to include it). I am indeed pleased that since 1997, The Anti-Muffins chapter is generally included within the novel, within Meet the Austins (and remain both annoyed and really [...]

    2. my love of the austin family led me to interloan this book, a short story written for a younger audience than "meet the austins." chronologically it fits right after the events in that bookis was a reasonably entertaining, if slightly preachy and ridiculously outdated, little visit with the austin family. i'm amazed that a public library is still circulating this little number in the j section. it's part of a series called "The Education of the Public and the Public School: A Monograph Series of [...]

    3. This isn't even a novella - more a short story about the joys of non-conformity. If you've readMeet the Austins , more than half of this book is repetitive exposition. Still, not bad - if a little dated.

    4. I have read every Madeleine L'Engle novel and while I like some much better than others I enjoy all of them at least in part. This is not one of my favorite books by her but it is still quite good. Her writing style always engages me and I find at least one character in every one of her books that I can relate to in some way.

    5. This little gem isn't easy to come by, but it's worth looking for. It's part of the Austin family series, and is technically a children's book. If you're wondering what an antimuffin is, this is the book that will tell you.

    6. A really short story that goes to explain something that was mentioned in passing in a previous Austin series book.
