Publisher Comments:

A rather large problem has befallen the Huit girls. (Sisters, actually. Octuplets to be exact.) One particular New Years Eve, the girls wait for their mommy to bring them hot chocolate and their daddy to return with more wood for the fire. But they dont. Mommy and Daddy, that is. Theyre gone. Poof! Maybe dead—no one knows for sure.

You must see the problem here. Eight little girls on their own, no mommy or daddy to take care of them. This is not a good thing.

So now these little girls, must take care of themselves. Get to school, cook the meals, feed the cats (eight of them, too), and pay the bills. They cant ask for help, oh no. Any self-respecting adult would surely call in social services, and those well-meaning people would have to split them up. After losing their parents, being split up would be completely unbearable.

At the same time, the question remains:What happened to Mommy and Daddy? The Sisters Eight (as they are called, affectionately and otherwise) are determined to find out. Luckily, they do seem to have someone or something helping them. Notes keep appearing behind a loose brick in the fireplace.

Its a good old-fashioned mystery with missing (or dead) parents, nosy neighbors, talking refrigerators, foul-smelling fruitcake (is there any other kind?), and even a little magic. Eight little girls, eight cats, and one big mystery—let the fun begin!

Annies Adventures, wherein the girls parents go missing (or die) and the girls learn each one has a power and gift. Annie, being the oldest, is the first to discover hers.

Synopsis:

Mystery, adventure, and magic are featured in a brand-new series starring octuplets. In "Annie's Adventures," the girls' parents go missing, and the girls learn that each of them has a power and gift. Annie, being the oldest, is the first to discover hers. Illustrations.

Synopsis:

Finally! Zinnias turn has arrived. The poor girl has been waiting for her turn quite long enough. Really, it would be cruel to make her wait any longer. What will her power and her gift be? Will either of them prove to be as much of a doozy as she has been hoping for? Theres only one way to find out: let her story begin. Its finally Zinnia Time!

Synopsis:

Rebeccas the tough one, always chastising the other Eights for not bucking up when trouble arises. But how will she fare when its her turn to face her power? What kids are saying about the Sisters Eight:

     “The Sisters 8 is really suspenseful and funny. I cant wait for the next one!”  Indrani, age 10

     “I love the Sisters 8 series because I love mysteries. My cousins, friends, and my sister and I like to play the Sisters 8 and we are each a different sister. I also like that the sisters are 8 years old like me.”  Claire, 8 years old

     “I like it! My favorite part [in Annies Adventures] is when they go to the toy store.”  Ian Richardson, age 6

Both my daughters (and I)love this new series starring eight eight-year-old sisters, mystery, adventure, and a huge dose of humor. The Huit sisters live in an unusual house, shared with eight unusual cats. In the way of multiples, the sisters find ways to distinguish themselves from one another, and Baratz-Logsted has done a brilliant job of imagining the conflicts and the joys of sisterhood. The set-up allows for each sister to discover a new and unexpected capacity within herself.

And it's so fun! I read these aloud and we hurt ourselves laughing. With eight personalities and new skills, every child will find someone to identify with. Unlike such creations as The Spice Girls, girl power here is found in accomplishment, not in looks.

Without saying a word, Baratz-Logsted also does an amazing job of defying gender norms and invoking feminism.
