Annie and the Wild Animals by Jan Brett

Annie’s cat is acting strangely…eating more, sleeping more and hiding in strange places and then one day she is gone. Annie is lonely and decides to leave a corn cake at the edge of the woods to see if she can get a small furry pet to come and eat it and then it would be her pet. Instead she gets a moose and then a wildcat and then a bear…not what she had in mind. As all of this is going on, the illustrations that border the page not only tell what animal from the woods Annie is going to meet next, but they also show what Annie’s cat (and her kittens) are doing. By the end of the story, it is spring and the forest animals have returned to the woods where they can now find food and Annie’s cat comes back with her new brood.
