Annie and the Wild Animals

Board Book - 1985
Average Rating:
Rate this:
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.

I love Jan Brett and this is one of her best! She is a treasure! As always, clues to the story can be found in the borders! Great story!

Annie is sweet in her desire for a pet. The boarders are quite intricate in themselves, and add an old-fashioned appeal.
