Children's LiteratureA half-pint girl shows an icy snow slide a thing or two in Avalanche Annie. In rollicking verse, Lisa Wheeler tells how an avalanche threatened the good folks of Yoohoo Valley till Annie and her pet moose lassoed the "icy beast" and rode it, bucking and mauling, to an earth-quaking standstill. Kurt Cyrus's lively snowscapes reinforce the rambunctious tall-tale tone of the text. Young readers will have a great time picking out all the ways the girl and her Yoohoo neighbors seek to tame the avalanche—and are sure to conclude that Annie is a hero for all seasons! 2003, Harcourt, Ages 3 to 7.
