Annie and the Wild Animals Send-A-Story (Send a Story)by Jan Brett
Synopses & Reviews
From the moment she sees Noelle, the beautiful ballerina doll in the toy store window, Ilyana knows that Noelle is the Christmas present she wants more than anything in the world. But Noelle has a dream of her own: to be a real ballerina, performing on stage for adoring fans. When the Imperial Ballet Company chooses Noelle to be the doll that Clara, the little girl in The Nutcracker, finds under the Christmas tree, it seems that Noelleand#8217;s dream is the one that will come true. Then, an unexpected setback makes Noelle realize that maybe, for a doll, being loved by one little girl is the best dream of all.
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.
Fritz, a pony excluded from the group of beautiful horses within the walled city, becomes a hero when he rescues the children of the city.
This retelling of the classic fairy tale will appeal to children because of its mystery, suspense, and romance, and to adults because of its exploration of the duality in human nature.
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.

Children everywhere will find comfort in this irresistible tale, now availble in a unique, mailable format.
