Newbery Medalist Cynthia Rylant captures the lively energy and warm spirit of her beloved Henry and Mudge series with this first tale starring Henry's cousin Annie and her pet bunny Snowball. Annie's birthday is coming up, and she plans to have a dress-up party. She looks forward to wearing ribbons, bows, lace, and fancy little shoes. But when the guests arrive- including Henry and Mudge-Annie learns that different people dress up in different ways. School Library Journal praises Annie's "warmth, affection, and laughter" and says readers "will look forward to her next adventure."

"What could be more special than a birthday party, complete with favorite foods and favorite friends? How convenient it is that those friends, Cousin Henry and Dog Mudge, live next door to Annie and her rabbit, Snowball. What exactly does "dress-up" mean to Annie and to Henry? Cassandra Morris is a purposeful and engaged narrator. Her child-friendly voice welcomes young listeners. Her distinct speech and moderate pace let Rylant's unpretentious and rich story unfold. Listen in as a moose, a pirate, a gypsy, and a mummy come to visit a ribbon-bedecked girl and her tuxedo-wearing father. A.R. (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine"
