More About the Author
After earning a BA and MA in English from the University of Michigan, she worked for a decade as a college and high school English teacher. She then earned an MLIS from the University of Rhode Island and returned to libraries as a school librarian. She was named Maine Library Media Specialist of the Year in 1999 and continued to work as an elementary school librarian while she launched a successful writing career.
In 2013, Toni's New York Times best-selling book One Cool Friend, illustrated by David Small, won a Caldecott Honor. It also won the Maine Literary Award for Children's Books from the Maine Writers and Publishers Alliance in the same year.
Since her first book, The Sea Chest, won a Maine Lupine Honor in 2003, Toni has received many other awards for her books, including a 2004-2005 Children's Gallery Award, also for The Sea Chest, and the 2012 Time of Wonder award for Lighthouse Christmas. Her books Dawdle Duckling, Little Loon and Papa, and One Cool Friend have been chosen by the Dolly Parton Imagination Library for international distribution to young children. Just Like My Papa, Stay Close to Mama, and Dawdle Duckling have all been Children's Book of the Month Club selections as well. Toni currently has four more picture books under contract.
Toni is a bit of a vagabond, writing in a charming writing cottage built by her husband on 35 acres of a colonial farm in Buxton, Maine, writing at the Cambridge Public Library near her grandbaby in Massachusetts, and slipping down to write in her sunny winter nest in Sarasota, Florida when the weather turns blustery at home.
A well-known speaker, Toni speaks extensively in schools as well as at conferences and district and regional professional development trainings, both nationally and internationally. Visit her website at www.tonibuzzeo.com.

Annie was all prepared for any adventure that came her way and to make sure she put everything from her zookeeper hat to her walkie-talkies in her backpack. When she arrived in Mr. Todd's kindergarten class she was surprised he didn't know who she was because as soon as she arrived she shouted, "Adventure Annie is here!" AND she had the letter A printed right on the front of her shirt. He wanted her to hang up her cape, but that was simply not going to happen. Mr. Todd explained the "Gold Star Rules" and told everyone that each day there was going to be a "Gold Star Deputy." Adventure Annie was determined to win the star, but did she have just a bit too much "adventure" in her to win the award?
Everyone is just going to fall in love with this darling, exuberant little kindergartner, Adventure Annie. This little hustling, bustling little girl will quickly bring to mind another little charmer named Ramona Quimby. She has a zest for life that will make the reader smile at her enthusiastic antics. She has no idea that she's not supposed to rush outside and play on the jungle gym while everyone else is nicely on task. If you liked Ramona, you are sure to quickly fall in love with little Annie Grace, better known as Adventure Annie!
Annie returns in vibrant colors thanks to illustrator Amy Wummer. The bright artwork coupled with Buzzeo's adventure hungry Annie, take on Kindergarten full steam ahead! Annie arrives with her adventure cape and attitude for her first day of school. With her backpack of extras and a positive attitude, Annie is ready for anything that kindergarten might bring her way.
Mr. Todd, the kindergarten teacher shares the Gold Star Rules for class but Annie has her own interpretation. Buzzeo hits a homerun as Annie creates her own adventures one after another trying to earn a Gold Star. As always, Annie finds a unique way to "save the day" and set the stage for her next adventure.
The duo of Buzzeo and Wummer have created a character that brings out the kindergartener in all of us! More please!
