In this Southern story, Miss Annie Mae is rewarded for her kindness to animals and strangers. An unexpected visitor named Raven appears on her doorstep with a magical bag that produces an abundance of goods. The artist creates colorful, mixed-media illustrations using paint, watercolor, and pen and ink. From her pigtails, to the baby bird in her pocket, down to her boots, Annie Mae is utterly charming.
