Counter Meet Annabel --

Annabel the actress, that is. Annabel's dream is to be a famous actress, but when she finally lands her first role, it isn't quite what she had in mind. She has to start somewhere, though, even if it means pretending to be a gorilla at a little kid's birthday party. The moment she accepts the job things get hairy. Her costume designer and best friend, Maggie, has trouble turning a raincoat's furry lining into a gorilla suit, and then her archenemy, Lowell, steals her mask. Through it all Annabel tells herself, "The show must go on." Then she faces her biggest challenge of all -- a tough audience of five-year-old boys. Will Annabel be a hit or a flop?

This book will have readers chuckling from the moment the curtain goes up and shouting "Encore!" even before it's over. Fortunately for them, Annabel will be back in further adventures!
