Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 2—The creative duo who enchanted early readers with Henry and Mudge have launched Henry's cousin Annie and her pet rabbit in a series of their own. Children who missed Henry and Mudge and Annie's Good Move (1998) and Henry and Mudge and Annie's Perfect Pet (2000, both S & S) will quickly catch up with these charming characters and their thoughtful friendship. Annie is looking forward to wearing her favorite "ribbons and bows and lace and fancy little shoes" for her birthday celebration and invites Henry, his parents, and Mudge to join her for a "Dress-up Birthday." As Annie and her father greet their guests, they realize that "dressing up" can have several connotations, but learn that a party with special friends brings great happiness. Stevenson's lively pen-and-ink and watercolor illustrations depict lots of action in the story's four short chapters, and amplify the characters' warmth, affection, and laughter. Annie has a winning combination of sensitivity, deliberation, girly frills, and fun, and readers will look forward to her next adventure.—Laura Scott, Farmington Community Library, MI

Format: Paperback
Annie's going to have a birthday, and she wants everyone to dress up! Her, her dad, her best friend and their dog and even Annie's bunny! But, Annie fails to mention what *type* of dress up she means... Will her party soar or suffer because of it?

I kept reading thinking, "I really shouldn't love this so much - but I do!" There's something incredibly sweet and endearing about this little book. There's a timeless feel, and it's overflowing with love and respect and kindness, without being annoyingly fake or sickly sweet. And somehow the author manages to convey all this with very few, simple words - quite an achievement!

Add all this to the absolutely adorable illustrations and I'll definitely going to look for more books in this series.

My 5-year-old daughter just loves these books. Thank you, Cynthia, for making a girl equivalent to Henry and Mudge.

My children love the Henry and Mudge series. This one about Annie is such a sweet story. I think we have read them all now, wish there were more!

I got several of these for my granddaughter; she seems to like them, and they are a great break from her princess books.
