Annie and the Wild Animalsby Jan Brett
Synopses & Reviews
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 Taffyand#8217;s return at the end of the winter.
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.
When Annie's cat disappears, she attempts friendship with a variety of unsuitable woodland animals. "The pictures hold countless surprises. Indisputably, this is a work of wonder that deserves highest honors."--"Publishers Weekly." Redbook Children's Book Award.
