Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1—We all know children who love to imagine themselves as superheroes-and with this sprightly story about Amelia Grace (aka Adventure Girl), readers can find a heroine with whom to identify. When Adventure Girl's mom is called back to work to find a misplaced report instead of the two of them spending the day together, she takes her daughter along, instructing her to sit and wait. But Adventure Girl has other ideas and stalks the wilds of the quiet workplace determined to find the file. In a great "rescue," she spots the errant folder under a desk and saves the day. The charm of this story lies not only in depicting the fun that kids have at parents' workplaces but also in portraying Adventure Girl as cheerfully undaunted by changes in plans and parental admonitions. The bright, full-color pencil and watercolor pictures are set against ample white space and show the warm relationship between mother and daughter. This is an office adventure that children will want to experience and a heroine they'll love meeting.—Marge Loch-Wouters, Menasha Public Library, WI

From Booklist

For a preschooler, a trip to an adult workplace is a big adventure, and even if Annie would prefer exploring a mountain top or a dark jungle, she finds a Saturday excursion to Mommy’s office wild and exciting, from riding up and up in the elevator, making it zoom and stop, to hunting through the office stationery. The weekend office is deserted. Mommy has come to pick up a missing report in a gold-colored folder, and the big, cartoon-style pencil-and-watercolor pictures show how Annie makes a treaure hunt out of the search for the folder. Along the way, she climbs up to get handfuls of stationery and gets lost in the copy room before she stumbles on the missing gold. Even young kids may see that this is an old-fashioned office: there are no computers anywhere and there is no online version of the file. Still, they will identify with the intrepid kid who finds treasure where grown-ups are lost. Preschool. --Hazel Rochman

More About the Author

Toni Buzzeo (1951- ), the acclaimed author of 20 picture books as well as 11 books for educators, was born in Dearborn, Michigan and grew up in the Dearborn Public Libraries, reading nearly every book in the children's and young adult sections of the Snow Branch library before taking a job downtown at the Main library as a Library Page and then a Library Assistant to put herself through college.

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.

The item was received quickly and was in great condition. A few days after it was delivered, I got an e-mail asking me to review the product which I did. Now, I have received many, many e-mails since asking me to review this same product WHICH I HAVE ALREADY REVIEWED. Sometimes I get more than one e-mail in a day. It's getting super annoying. Seriously. It was one kids' book I bought for less than $5 STOP HARASSING ME ABOUT IT, AMAZON. You're like an annoying one-night stand that keeps calling and asking me "Was it as good for you as it was for me"". Yes, it was great, now leave me alone, man.

Format: Hardcover
With all her creativity and energy, Annie Grace has no trouble thinking up wild adventures on which to embark in the weekends with her mom. But this particular Saturday is different, because mom has to go into the office to search for a big report that got misplaced, and Annie needs to come along. Not one to miss a beat, Adventure Annie quickly turns the office visit into a search for hidden treasure in the imaginary jungle (copy room) and mountainside (mail room). Will she save the day and find the missing report? This entertaining book provides a good opportunity to talk with younger children about the challenges, and rewards, that women in the workforce experience when they combine their paid jobs with raising children.

Toni Buzzeo has written another fantastic book titled Adventure Annie Goes to Work! For those who know Toni's work, her characters always capture the reader's imagination. Annie is an entertaining character whose antics make you laugh and think of a friend, sister or cousin who is just like Annie! Although Annie is four years old, children as old as 9 or 10 can relate to this well developed character. This book is a great to share with fourth and fifth graders as a model for developing characters and ideas in their writing. Enjoy!
