Annie And The Wild Animals (Turtleback School & Library Binding Edition)

( 5 )

Overview

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 Taffy’s return at the end of the winter.

Overview

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 Taffy’s return at the end of the winter.

When Annie's cat disappears, she attempts friendship with a variety of unsuitable woodland animals, but with the emergence of Spring, everything comes right.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
"The pictures hold countless surprises. Indisputably, this is a work of wonder that deserves highest honors."
Children's Literature - Kathleen Karr
Here is a different kind of a board book. Jan Brett's original picture book has been reduced to fit the squarish, hold-in-a-toddler's-hand format. When a real story is being told—as is the case here—this reduction process makes for very small print and also minimalizes the border marginalia, a very important part of Brett's storytelling. All that being noted, her tale is still lovely and welcome in any reincarnation. Annie lives in a cabin deep in the snowy woods with her cat Tabby. When Tabby mysteriously disappears, little Annie sets corn cakes in the snow in hopes of making other animal friends. Alas, very hungry moose, bears, wildcats, and wolves really will not do as playmates. When the cornmeal is all gone, what is Annie to do? Brett's touching story and wonderfully evocative illustrations of deep winter and its animals make this a very special book for nighttime snuggling-in-bed reading.

    Love Jan Brett children's books.

    I bought this as a gift on the internet and did not have a chance to read it, but because it is a Jan Brett book I know it is good. One of the excellent qualities of Jan Brett books are the illustrations. They are excellent. I would recommend any of Jan Brett's books to parents of pre-schoolers. One of her books that is fast becoming a classic is The Mitton.
