Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Amy McMillan
Miss Annie finds new freedom when her owners install a kitty door allowing her access to the city streets at night. While her friend Keisha (a mouse) is worried she will eat the mice she finds outside or get into trouble Miss Annie can't wait to explore. She spends her time with two older cats that teach her about boy cats and entice her into fights with a local gang of alley cats. She rescues a mouse that wanders into the middle of things and takes him home where he and Keisha settle down to raise a litter of babies. And that is about all there is to the story; just three short chapters with not much going on. For something geared to a younger audience there are an awful lot of sexual overtones as well as an abundance of name calling and degrading comments from both the human and animal characters. The illustrations are decent but rather dark and don't stand out as anything remarkable. There are much better options, such as Long Tail Kitty and the "Mr. Badger and Mrs. Fox" series, for someone looking for a beginning/easy graphic novel. Reviewer: Amy McMillan
School Library Journal
Gr 3–6—Miss Annie is a four-month-old kitten who thinks she is old enough to venture outside into the great wide world. In Freedom, she tries to tell her masters this by doing a fabulous job of guarding the house while they are away. Unfortunately, the humans and the feline don't see eye to eye on what is and what isn't a threat to their home. Good thing they don't know she's befriended a little mouse that has moved in. When she discovers an open window, she decides it is time to experience the sweet taste of freedom and soon finds out that there are rules outside the house, too. Eager to show her the ropes are two older and much wiser neighbor cats, and Miss Annie follows along. In Rooftop, Miss Annie's masters have finally installed a cat door, and she begins venturing forth immediately despite her mouse friend's worries. She finally gets the night of excitement she has been dreaming of when she and the neighbor cats must defend their territory from a band of roaming alley cats. Things look dire until a new cat appears to help them defeat the invaders and cope with the tragic aftermath of the battle. Cat lovers will enjoy seeing things from this feline's perspective. She might be small, but she is full of personality and it shines through in the stories as well as in the colorful illustrations, laid out in eight frames per page.—Carol Hirsche, Provo City Library, UT

Meet the Author

Born in Rouen in France, award-winning writer Frank Le Gall published his first works at the age of sixteen. Since then Le Gall has continued writing graphic novel adventures, occasionally taking a break for animation and short stories.

Born in 1981 in La Louvière, Belgium, Flore Balthazar decided at the age of nine that she would become a cartoonist, after reading Hergé's Tintin and other comics at the local library across the street from her house. She soon realized that her art would not look exactly like Tintin, and developed her own self-taught style. She eventually went on to study at the Binche and the Etterbeek Academies of Fine Arts (both in Belgium), also studying Slavic languages and literature at the university in Brussels. She quickly realized that the best way to become a cartoonist is simply to keep drawing. She now lives in Orléans, France. Miss Annie is her first graphic novel series.
