Annie and the Wild Animals is a touching story about a girl whose golden-haired cat, Taffy, has wandered off. Annie is lonely and the winter seems endless. Annie tries to lure her kitty back, but without success. Instead she attracts a moose, a bear, and even a wildcat! But none are as soft and cuddly and friendly as Taffy. Where could Taffy be? The short story is brought to life through the book’s wonderfully detailed illustrations by Jan Brett. A story-within-a-story develops as the intricate borders foreshadow the end of the story and Taffy’s return to her Annie.
