Anna Banana is fearless. She swings high in the playground, invents stories about huge, terrifying goblins -- and believes in magic. The small boy she plays with is afraid. He would never do the things that Anna Banana does, even when they're together. But one day, when he's most scared, he uses a little bit of her magic -- and makes some of this own. This warm, funny story about a feisty little girl and her timid playmate is sure to touch the youngest reader.
