Fanny & Annabelle

By Holly Hobbie (Hardcover Book, 2009)
Holly Hobbie, the bestselling author of the Toot & Puddle series, brings us FANNY & ANNABELLE, a new story about creative Fanny with a do-it-yourself theme. In the second Fanny adventure, Fanny writes her first picture book. Since Annabelle, her doll, was Fanny's first creation, it's fitting she should star in the story. Annabelle's adventure ends up mirroring Fanny's own life as they both manage to give the perfect birthday gift to a loved one. With Hobbie's heartwarming art mixed with Fanny's own delightfully naïve drawings, this sweet tale will inspire fans and new readers alike to get creative.

  • Praise for Fanny:

    *A Parent's Choice selection

    "Children will empathize with Fanny's strong emotions and appreciate her creative knack for bringing her own happy ending." (Booklist).

  • "The message of fostering individuality and creativity will be welcomed." (Publishers Weekly).

  • "It will charm you completely and utterly...The illustrations themselves are part of the real draw here. Fanny is immediately accessible and sympathetic right off the bat....the tone of Fanny will sustain it in the memories of children and adults for a long time to come. Sweet in the best sense of the word." (Fuse 8 (SLJ)).

  • "The soft watercolor illustrations show this protagonist to be an independent thinker as well as a talented seamstress. Sometimes not following the crowd can have unexpectedly wonderful results." (School Library Journal).
