I really liked this transitional chapter book. I thought that the pictures and colors made it fun to read. The pages were not filled with a ton of words, and if there is more than one idea conveyed on a page, the text is broken up and placed above a picture to describe each idea. For example, when the author began listing different things Annie and her best friend did, a picture of each activity was provided. I like all of the dialogue that is used throughout the book. I feel like conversations are easier to read and do not require a lot of inferring. For example, “Here’s a crazy quilt,” said Henry. “And look at this fancy mirror.” “Wow!” said Annie. She saw a flowed chair in another corner. “Perfect!” she said. This easy read will encourage children to keep reading chapter books. I liked that the author uses a lot of repetition with the words. For example, “They carried lamps nad chairs. They carried tables and mirrors. They even carried a lovely old angel with a chipped wing.” I also like how the characters are well developed, even in such a short chapter book. For example, it was evident that Annie only lived with her father, but she had a great support system that included her best friend’s parents. The central message of this book is that having a single parent does not mean you are less loved. ( )

"Annie, her father, and her pet bunny live next door to her cousin, henry, and his dog, Mudge." The kids expore the attic and get pretty things to decorate Annie's house while Snowball and Mudge investigate things. "This charming easy reader will draw in youngsters with its vivacious pen-and-ink and watercolor illustrations, and short paragraphs and chapters will help beginning readers prepare for more complex stories."
From School Library Journal, November 2007, p. 100
