Annie and the Wild Animals (Paperback)
When Annie's cat disappears one winter morning, the lonely little girl tries to befriend the woodland animals behind her home. This beautiful picture book by best-selling author-illustrator Jan Brett celebrates a child's love of animals, spring, and life.
Something is wrong with Taffy the cat. She's stopped playing with Annie and sleeps all day long. One day, Taffy disappears. Annie is very lonely and tries to make friends with the woodland creatures, but none of them are as soft and friendly as Taffy. When Taffy finally returns, she brings back something unexpected. Jan Brett's distinctive illustration style uses the borders of the pages to foretell the emergence of spring and the birth of kittens.
