The pictures hold countless surprises. Indisputably, this is a work of wonder that deserves highest honors. - Publishers Weekly Annie is a little girl who lives in a forest cottage with her cat Taffy. When Taffy disappears mysteriously into the snow, Annie is crushed. She puts out corn cakes to see if she can find a new animal friend to keep her company, but who can snuggle with a moose, bear, or wildcat? Jan Brett's wonderfully illustrative borders tell the story of the vanishing Taffy and the surprises spring has in store. This perennial favorite is now a paperback book and CD set, with an unabridged dramatic reading set to fun music and lively sound effects.
