About the book: When ten-year-old Andy moves from California to his new house in Colorado, the last thing he expects is to meet a ghost named Annie.
Annie has been living in that house for eighty years. Will Annie spook Andy away? Or will the two find out that sometimes, the best of friends might not be who you first expected?
The Andy & Annie series by author Jenni James and illustrator BC Sterrett is like Diary of a Wimpy Kid meets Junie B. Jones with a paranormal twist. Your young reader will love getting to know these characters and going with them on amazing adventures!
My review: I needed a book to read with our elementary aged daughter for a Parent's and Pastries morning a few weeks ago, and I was thrilled when I found this book on my Kindle. This is a super cute book, I loved all of the illustrations and the story is perfect for elementary aged kids.
What kid doesn't want to meet a friendly ghost that has lived in their house for a really long time? I loved that Andy had to make up with Annie and ask her to forgive him for being rude, all kids need to learn that valuable skill. I also liked that through some of the kids being mean to Andy at school, he was able to recognize his own meanness and make things better. It was also really fun that no one else could see Annie, and Andy kept yelling at her or talking to her, so funny! I can't wait to read more of Andy and Annie's adventures together.
I was sent an e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
