    In master's thesis we're dealing with motive of family and problem topics Dese Muck in the collection Anica. She is a Slovenian children's writer known for her humorous works. For her book collection Anica she was awarded with Levstik award and also received honorary IBBY plaque. Collection consists of ten narratives published between 2001 and 2007. In all of them girl Anica is the main literary figure. Ana Košir who is well known Slovenian illustrator and caricaturist made illustrations for the collection Anica. Based on the success and popularity of the collection Anica TV series was filmed and played on Slovenian National Television in 2008. Theoretical part of master's thesis has detailed presentation of the collection Anica and also contains content review from all ten books. Master's thesis present us with definition of Slovenian children's literature which was defined by Marjana Kobe, Igor Saksida and Milena Mileva Blažić through the time. Theoretical part focuses on Slovenian children's realistic prose as it was defined by Dragica Haramija (2005) and on modern fairy tale after Marjana Kobe's theory (2000a). Collection contains lots of topics and problems youth readers can encounter on a daily basis. Therefore theoretical part discusses problem topics which are then being analysed throughout the collection Anica in empirical part. Because of the motive of the family this part of our master's thesis also includes detailed definition of family and all of the family typologies from author Tanja Rener (2006). Empirical part analyses the entire Anica collection. According to Tanja Rener's theory we wanted to know which types of family can we find in the collection Anica and also what kind of relationships are between family members. Tanja Rener is a researcher of sociology of the families and youth studies. Three books were chosen for a detailed analysis: Anica in zajček (2001c), Anica in velike skrbi (2003) Anica in velika skrivnost (2004b). Books were compared with qualitative literary analysis. We wanted to know if those specific books have all elements of modern fairy tale by Marjana Kobe's theory (2000a) and if they have any characteristics of theory of problem literature by Igor Saksida (2014). The analysis results showed how motive of family is represented in each of all ten parts of the Anica collection. A more detailed analysis of three selected works has shown which problem topics are being present in them and if they have it's characteristics (Saksida, 2014). Analysis also showed if there are any attributes of modern fairy tale (Kobe, 2000a) and where there are differences.
