Book Review #601
Annie And The Old One by Miska Miles, illustrated by Peter Parnall
Rating: one star (out of four)
I do not know why this book got the Newbery Honor. I was not the least bit impressed with it. The story had elements of greatness, but I just couldn't get into it. I was also a little dismayed with how things turned out in the end, I didn't want to accept it as easily as the little girl did. The illustrations were okay, but I would have liked something with more color.
