Newbery Medalist Cynthia Rylant captures the lively energy and warm spirit of her beloved Henry and Mudge series with this first tale starring Henry’s cousin Annie and her pet bunny Snowball. Annie’s birthday is coming up, and she plans to have a dress-up party. She looks forward to wearing ribbons, bows, lace, and fancy little shoes. But when the guests arrive— including Henry and Mudge—Annie learns that different people dress up in different ways.
School Library Journal praises Annie’s “warmth, affection, and laughter” and says readers “will look forward to her next adventure.”
