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 naive drawings, this sweet tale will inspire fans and new readers alike to get creative.
