and#8220;The pictures hold countless surprises. Indisputably, this is a work of wonder that deserves highest honors.and#8221; and#8211;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 Brettand#8217;s 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 readingand#160;set toand#160;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 Taffyand#8217;s 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.

Annie's best friend is her cat, but when her cat starts acting strangely, then disappears into the woods completely, Annie is left alone and sad. She decides to lure herself a new animal friend by making corn cakes and leaving them near the woods. But what comes out is not what she expects.

The story is sweet and simple, but the real beauty lies in the borders around the pages that hint of the upcoming pages. Tiny figures reminiscent of woodcuts adorn the border of each richly done main image, making this a book that can be read in a few minutes, or something to be admired for quite a long time. Good for those little ones who like to go back to each page, even after the story is done. I promise, with this book, you won't mind.
