Overview

From the author of the 2013 Caldecott Honor Book, ONE COOL FRIEND!

Annie Grace is all set for a Saturday full of fun with Mommy. Donning her sparkly tights and red cape, she becomes Adventure Annie! But—oh no!— Mommy’s important report has gotten lost and she needs to go to her office to find it. What kind of adventure can Annie possibly have in an office building? Well, it turns out that a rambunctious, imaginative kid can find adventure anywhere—and can maybe even save the day for Mommy at the same time.

Infectiously lively and humorously true to the creative energy of a typical preschooler, this is also the perfect read-aloud choice for kids who are curious about what their working parents do all day.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Beverley Fahey
Annie loves Saturdays because that is the day she dons her red cape and hopes for a grand adventure. But this Saturday she must accompany her mother to the office to look for a missing report. Her mother's idea of adventure is for Annie to sit at her desk and color while mom hunts down the missing file. Undaunted, Annie sneaks down the hall, gathers appropriate supplies, and draws a map and begins a search of her own. She may not be the neatest or most organized treasure seeker but she is the most persistent, and that resolve pays off when she finds the missing folder under the copier. This delightful little romp through the office will appeal to kids who wonder what their parents do at work all day. The watercolor-and-pencil drawings are filled with lots of office bric-a-brac and it is hard not to cheer for Annie in her red cape and boots. Teachers will like her creative map-making skills and problem solving methodology. Kids will look forward to another adventure from Annie. Reviewer: Beverley Fahey
School Library Journal
We all know children who love to imagine themselves as superheroes–and with this sprightly story about Annie Grace (aka Adventure Girl), readers can find a heroine with whom to identify. When Adventure Girl’s mom is called back to work to find a misplaced report instead of the two of them spending the day together, she takes her daughter along, instructing her to sit and wait. But Adventure Girl has other ideas and stalks the wilds of the quiet workplace determined to find the file. In a great “rescue,” she spots the errant folder under a desk and saves the day. The charm of this story lies not only in depicting the fun that kids have at parents’ workplaces but also in portraying Adventure Girl as cheerfully undaunted by changes in plans and parental admonitions. The bright, full-color pencil and watercolor pictures are set against ample white space and show the warm relationship between mother and daughter. This is an office adventure that children will want to experience and a heroine they’ll love meeting.–Marge Loch-Wouters, Menasha Public Library, WI
Kirkus Reviews
It's Adventure Annie to the rescue! Clad in her crimson adventure cape, matching red boots, blue skirt and yellow sparkle tights, Adventure Annie, superheroine extraordinaire, is unfazed when Mommy tells her that instead of playing this Saturday, they'll be going to the office for a Big Report Treasure Hunt to find a missing document. This energetic tale, peppered with superhero-like phrases ("I ziggle up and down the halls. I zaggle round corners and under chairs"), is well-matched by Wummer's colorful, child-friendly pencil-and-watercolor pictures, which are filled with movement and zip. They show Annie armed with a vivid imagination and a no-nonsense strategy, as she sets out to save the day by drawing a map and ferreting out the report by methodically searching through a sea of manila envelopes and the jungle of the copy-room floor. A strong mother-and-daughter story with an exuberant lead, this uplifting selection is full of everyday fun as well as being a nice depiction of the usefulness of organizational and map-making skills. A winning choice for both classroom and home. (Picture book. 4-7)
