Winter 2009 Kids' List

“Fanny is a little girl who desperately wants the over-the-top doll that she can't have; so, she makes her own. She struggles to accept her own creation until she finds a way to celebrate her unique new friend. A refreshingly sweet alternate to 'girly-girl' picture books.”
— Kelli Gleiner, Blue Manatee Children's Bookstore, Cincinnati, OH


All Fanny wants in the world is a Connie doll, but Mom says "NO!" But no one ever said she couldn't make one instead! With some scissors, glue, and her craft box in hand, Fanny sets out to replicate Connie, but it's Annabelle who is the result of her efforts. A little lopsided and a little unkempt, Annabelle turns out to be the companion Fanny has always wanted. Though at first her friends turn up their noses, in the end everyone learns that using your imagination and working with your own two hands can result in the best toy of all!
