When Annie's cat disappears, she attempts friendship with a variety of unsuitable woodland animals. "The pictures hold countless surprises. Indisputably, this is a work of wonder that deserves highest honors."--"Publishers Weekly." Redbook Children's Book Award.
From the Publisher:
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.
Annotation:
Jan Brett's gorgeously detailed illustrations and amazing borders illuminate the story of a little girl named Annie. During a cold, snowy winter, Annie's cat, Taffy, disappears, leaving her very sad. Annie tries befriending different woodland animals by placing corn cakes at the edge of the wood, but the creatures who eat them aren't the best companions. A moose, bobcat, and intimidating bear are just a few of her uncuddly visitors. But soon, Taffy joyfully reappears--with kittens! Northern European folk motifs are scattered throughout this handsome book.
