Annie, first introduced to readers in REMEMBERING MRS. ROSSI (Candlewick, 2007), lives with her dad in New York City and is now in fourth grade. Her new best friend, a floppy-haired puppy named Leo, is helping her cope with schoolwork, an icky boy, and a best friend who is moving away. She writes letters to him, and reads them to him at night…Upbeat and chirpy, and decorated with lots of kid-style illustrations, LETTERS TO LEO evokes empathy with a light touch.

In Annie, readers will find a perfectly imperfect Model Citizen, a loving daughter and good friend—in other words, someone a lot like them.
