Annabel is friendly, caring, witty, full of energy and ideas, and occasionally talks her way into trouble. She sounds a lot like I’d like to be! Kate tells all about the things Annabel gets up to, Kate being the loyal friend with a little more perspective on life, but a secret desire to be just as adventurous – at least that’s my interpretation.
This first volume of five tales about Annabel’s adventures is easy reading for any 12 year old girl, and maybe some younger ones and boys too, since only the big worry about how to get a cool boy to take to the Third Year’s Disco is really gender biased, and boys might want to read that to gain more insight into that amazing mystery of how girls think, anyway.
I looked forward to each new tale as the old one finished, and being a decent sized short story each, I think they’ll appeal to lots of tweens who like to have a good story without reading under the covers into the night. There are more books in the series, and I may well explore some of them. Thoroughly enjoyable!
