School Library Journal
“Cat lovers will enjoy seeing things from this feline’s perspective. She might be small, but she is full of personality and it shines through in the stories as well as in the colorful illustrations, laid out in eight frames per page.” —School Library Journal
“Annie has a wide range of expressions, from her perked ears to the tip of her pert tail, a perfectly captured paragon of kittenhood…. This gentle story of discovery is kept lively with Annie’s antics, interior dialogue, and interactions with the creatures, human and otherwise, in her neighborhood.” —Publishers Weekly
“Balthazar’s charming artwork…primarily uses Annie’s eyes and ears to express her many emotions.” —Booklist
“A charming balance of cartoon and natural kitty-ness in full-color, eight-panel pages, this cat’s-eye view of life will induce purrs in feline fans everywhere.” —Kirkus Reviews
Illustrator: Flore Balthazar
Born in 1981 in La Louvière, Belgium, Flore Balthazar decided at the age of nine that she would become a cartoonist, after reading Hergé's Tintin and other comics at the local library across the street from her house. She soon realized that her art would not look exactly like Tintin, and developed her own self-taught style. She eventually went on to study at the Binche and the Etterbeek Academies of Fine Arts (both in Belgium), also studying Slavic languages and literature at the university in Brussels. She quickly realized that the best way to become a cartoonist is simply to keep drawing. She now lives in Orléans, France. Miss Annie is her first graphic novel series.
