    “Amazing Annabelle and the Apple Celebration is truly an amazing story. The story reflects on having a positive attitude towards school and the wonderful feeling a child can have because of it. More importantly, Linda Taylor shows children that a positive attitude can give you the power to change the behavior of bullying. This is a powerful lesson that children need to have. I’m looking forward to Amazing Annabelle’s next adventures.”

    “Amazing Annabelle lives her family motto: ‘Life is whatever you make it!’ As she begins a new school year, Annabelle is determined to make it an amazing one. When she encounters a challenge, Annabelle launches Operation Kindness with surprising results. Children will enjoy the delicious characters they encounter in Amazing Annabelle, from Kindhearted Kaitlyn to Principal Johnny Appleseed. I am looking forward to Amazing Annabelle’s next adventures!”

    “Annabelle is a character full of spunk, class, and positivity. Fueled with ambitions of having an adventure-filled school year, Annabelle is excited to see what the month of September has in store. The Apple Celebration is a perfect time for Annabelle to really flaunt her fashion sense, coordinating perfectly to the theme with red apple bracelets, earrings, and dresses, but will one student turn her bubbly positivity into rotten negativity? This story really defines the value of kindness and how far one act of kindness can go.”
