A rather large problem has befallen the Huit girls. (Sisters, actually. Octuplets to be exact.) One particular New Yearand#8217;s 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 donand#8217;t. Mommy and Daddy, that is. Theyand#8217;re gone. Poof! Maybe deadand#151;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 canand#8217;t 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.
Itand#8217;s 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 mysteryand#151;let the fun begin!
Annieand#8217;s Adventures, wherein the girlsand#8217; 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.
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.
Rebecca's the tough one, always chastising the other Eights for not bucking up when trouble arises. But how will she fair when it's her turn to face her power? You'll have to read the story to find out!

The penultimate episode in the Sisters Eight saga!
Finally! Zinniaand#8217;s turn has arrived. The poor girl has been waiting for her time in the spotlight 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? Thereand#8217;s only one way to find out: Let her story begin. Itand#8217;s finally Zinnia Time!
The ninth volume and dramatic conclusion of the magical series The Sisters Eightand#160;about octuplet girls who are off on an adventure to rescue Mommy and Daddy!
It's the final book! Each of the Eights has received her power and gift and they even know where Daddy isand#8212;inside a snowglobe-shaped Christmas tree ornament. Now all they have to do is get inside the ornament and rescue Daddy. Hopefully, Mommy's in there with him.
For heaven's sake, how are they supposed to shrink all of them (plus the cats!) down to a size small enough to fit in the globe and then actually get inside it? Of course, through magic or just shear will powerand#8212;who really knows whichand#8212;the girls have done quite a few things that, to be honest, they really shouldn't have been able to do. But this seems like asking too much even for these intelligent and talented girls.
But the Eights are also a very determined group. Now that they know where Daddy is, they willand#8212;and they doand#8212;find a way to him. But they never would have guessed what else awaits them inside the snowglobe.
