Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 2-3In her newest adventure, Annie Bananie extends a friendly gesture toward her friend Libby's strange new neighbors. However, it is misunderstood, and she winds up in People's Court, accused of intending to steal. Fortunately, the judge turns out to be a fair and tolerant woman. Komaiko misses the opportunity to explain the courtroom or the legal process itself, and the courtroom setting serves as nothing more than a location. Annie is a great independent character, surrounded by lively friends and family. Unfortunately, the character development here is incomplete and doesn't help to further the story. Also, there isn't enough explanation for readers new to the series. For example, they never discover what kind of club meeting the girls have and why one of the members always "meows" and another one "neighs." The language is disjointed and sometimes confusing. Sentences are choppy, and paragraphs often jump from one topic to another without completing a thought. Fans of the earlier titles may enjoy reading more about these vivacious girls and crazy Grandma Gert, but more rewarding series abound.Christie J. Flynn, J.
