The Lovereading comment

A timeless tale that despite its 1933 setting resonates so brilliantly with kids reading it today.  Not only beautifully written but the characters are handled with great sensitivity and aplomb.

Synopsis

Annie by Thomas Meehan

It's 1933 and for as long as she can remember, 11 year old Annie has believed that her mother and father would come back to her New York City orphanage to get her. But mean Miss Hannigan the headmistress is making Annie's life a misery. So she runs away to find her parents - and along the way she rescues a friendly dog, meets millionaire Oliver Warbucks, and has many scary and exciting adventures. Will kind-hearted Annie find a way to escape her hard-knock life?
