Annie Bananie is one of a kind. Along with her best friend and pet porcupine, Annie Bananie terrorizes the neighborhood, swings from the clothesline, and is transformed from Ann from outer space to the lovely Princess Annie Ba-nanie. So when this redheaded live wire has to move, her best friend is completely bereft: "Annie Bananie, / Do you think it's good / Leaving your whole neighborhood?... How can you just go away? / What about my sixth birthday?" Bravely, her friend tries to make the best of the situation, encouraging Annie Bananie to make new friends and try to write. But most importantly, she wants Annie Bananie to remember that she will "never ever ever / Never ever / Ever / Never / find another friend like me."
Sweet and outrageously silly, Annie Bananie addresses that most woeful of childhood experiences--the loss of a best friend to another town. With just the right balance of lightness and sorrow--and Laura Cornell's enchanting illustrations of the rough-and-tumble pair--this warm, colorful book deserves a spot on every child's shelf. Leah Komaiko (along with illustrator Abby Carter) is the author of several other books about the inimitable Annie Bananie, including Annie Bananie and the Pain Sisters. Laura Cornell is the bestselling illustrator of Jamie Lee Curtis's Where Do Balloons Go? and other popular titles. (Ages 4 to 8) --Emilie CoulterAbout the Author:
