About the Book
A Broadway classic is back on the big screen December 19, 2014!

Relive all of your favorite Annie moments in this easy-to-read story, illustrated with color photos from the movie.

Annie is a foster kid who's had a hard knock life ever since her parents left her as a baby. She doesn't think she'll ever escape her mean foster mom, Miss Hannigan, but everything's about to change. Wanting to improve his image ahead of the election campaign, New York mayoral candidate Will Stacks takes Annie in. Stacks soon discovers that Annie's sun-will-come-out-tomorrow outlook just might be the thing he needs in his life.

This modern retelling stars some of Hollywood's biggest names, including Jamie Foxx (Will Stacks), Cameron Diaz (Miss Hannigan), Rose Byrne (Grace Farrell), and Academy Award nominated Quvenzhané Wallis (Annie). Director/Producer/Screenwriter Will Gluck has teamed up with producers James Lassiter, Will Smith & Jada Pinkett Smith, Shawn "JAY Z" Carter, Laurence "Jay" Brown, and Tyran "Ty Ty" Smith in this Columbia Pictures movie.

My Take on the Book
This book did a great job at capturing the essence of the new movie that will be hitting the theaters soon. You not only get a good feel for the story, but the book also shares great images form the movie itself. After reading this you get more and more excited for the movie, or at least my own daughters did. The book was well written and engaged my girls from beginning to end.
