    " Annie is such a stereotype of childish femininity that she kind of makes me cringe. I prefer Mudge. "

    " We've enjoyed the stories in this series; it's heartwarming to read stories about close extended families. Henry and his folks help Annie make her dream of having a pretty house come true. It's a fun story to read aloud. "

    " Although we love books by this writer/illustrator team, this one wasn't our favorite. It was too cutesy and it really didn't lead anywhere. Our girls loved the illustrations and pointing out how dirty the girls got in their fancy dresses. "
