Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“The pictures hold countless surprises. Indisputably, this is a work of wonder that deserves highest honors.” -Publishers Weekly

Annie is a little girl who lives in a forest cottage with her cat Taffy. When Taffy disappears mysteriously into the snow, Annie is crushed. She puts out corn cakes to see if she can find a new animal friend to keep her company, but who can snuggle with a moose, bear, or wildcat? Jan Bretts wonderfully illustrative borders tell the story of the vanishing Taffy and the surprises spring has in store. This perennial favorite is now a paperback book and CD set, with an unabridged dramatic reading set to fun music and lively sound effects.

Synopsis:

When Annie's cat disappears, she attempts friendship with a variety of unsuitable woodland animals. The borders of the pages foretell the emergence of spring and the birth of kittens.

Synopsis:

Annie was lonely. Taffy, her golden-haired cat, had disappeared. Life in the woods was empty, and Annie could not find anyone to be her friend. Outside, the snow was deep and the winter seemed endless.

A moose and a bear and even a wildcat are not as friendly or as soft or as cuddlesome as Taffy. A story within a story forms as the intricate borders subtly foreshadow the main plot of Taffys return at the end of the winter.

Synopsis:

When Annie's beloved cat disappears into the forest one cold winter day, Annie becomes lonely and sets out to find another animal friend. Brett's exquisite and clever illustrations and use of borders captivate young readers and listeners.

Synopsis:

After Taffy goes away, Annie finds the winter long and lonely without her cat. Annie meets all the animals in the woods, but none make her happy the way Taffy did. Luckily for Annie, her fluffy friend has a big surprise for her when winter ends! Now, in the Send-A-Story format, this wintry book is the perfect mailable gift for celebrating friendship all season long. A tiny, mailable version complete with addressable flaps and seals.Why send a card when you can Send-A-Story?
