Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In Annabel the Actress Starring in: Hound of the Barkervilles by Ellen Conford, illus. by Renee W. Andriani, the third title in the series, Annabel joins the cast of her first professional production. But the role presents real challenges, including the fact that her co-star is a dog "almost as big as a Jeep" and the bunny pajamas her character is supposed to wear creates a "costume emergency!" (July) Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
School Library Journal
Gr 2-4-Annabel has always wanted to be an actress, and she has been practicing at home. She gets her big break when she is asked to play the butler's daughter in a mystery play to benefit the Friends of the Arts. The hound of the title is a huge Newfoundland that has a playful personality and a never-ending supply of slobber. Although the child faces several challenges, from her costume burning in the dryer to her worst enemy trying to ruin the show, Annabel triumphs in the end and the performance is a success. Andriani's pen-and-ink spot illustrations perfectly capture the action and the mood of the delightful cast. Vocabulary is seamlessly introduced within the context of the story so that younger readers will not be confused by words like "interactive" and "realistic." Aspiring actors, dog lovers, and fans of Annabel's previous appearances will enjoy this lighthearted and humorous easy chapter book.-Genevieve Gallagher, New York Public Library Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Cute and lightly amusing though not as funny as its predecessor (Starring in Just a Little Extra, 2000, etc.), this time Annabel, Conford's can-do budding actress heroine, is offered a part in an interactive mystery play. Annabel, who lives by the motto "no part too big or too small," is thrilled at the opportunity, but when she arrives at her first rehearsal, isn't happy to discover that she'll be sharing the stage with Binky, a gigantic dog who drools by the bucketful. Ever game, Annabel comforts herself with the notion that her favorite star, Winona McCall, had to deal with wild rhinoceroses and leopards in her last movie, while she just has "to work with a huge dog the size of a Jeep." Aptly illustrated by Andriani's droll black-and-white drawings, the humor in this series is fueled by Annabel's comic obsession to perform no matter what obstacles are thrown her way. And Conford piles them on, having her young heroine cope not only with Binky, but a ridiculous bunny costume and finally, on the night of the performance, heckling from her hateful classmate Lowell Boxer. But Annabel, who is intelligent and resourceful, proves to be a "real trooper," and her quick thinking saves the day. Particularly good is that Annabel's idea is both credible and childlike, the kind of save that an actual kid could come up with. Sadly, despite the fact that the Conford's production is smooth and professional, it's also rather hollow, technically on point but lacking her special brand of energized sparkle. (Fiction. 7-10)
