Anna Marie and the Crazy Gobbles
by Gino Hallidy View author's profile page

Overview


One morning a little girl named Anna Marie wakes up because a terrible ice storm has broken her window. Suddenly, a calico cat brings her kittens through the broken window and Anna Marie can't wait to show her mommy. But Anna Marie's parents aren't home! She thinks they must be with her grandmother, Toesie. The cat agrees to accompany Anna Marie on her walk to Toesie's house which is five blocks away, as long as her kittens can stay and rest in Anna Marie's bed. They set off for Toesie's, but all the ice from the storm melts. The bridge across the Rock Creek is flooded. Charles agrees to lead Anna Marie through the woods to a higher bridge where they hope they will be able to cross.

Description


Something unnatural is happening along the Rock Creek, causing a freakish ice storm to break Anna Marie's window! She asks for help from a calico cat who is sheltering from the storm with her kittens in Anna Marie's bed. When the kittens fall asleep, Anna Marie and the cat set off for Toesie's, where they hope to find Anna Marie's parents, but all the ice from the storm melts and the bridge across the Rock Creek is flooded. They have many exciting encounters as they travel along the Rock Creek looking for a higher bridge, including an apple copter that almost hits a baby bird learning to fly, a snake with a pair of goggles that allow him to see the true nature of things, and a very unnatural war between an army of frogs and an injured coyote. But they make new friends too.

A really fun book for anyone who likes to have adventures while walking through the woods eating cookies!
