Annabel is desperate to be an actress. Knowing she has to practice, she places an ad in the paper looking for any role. She is offered the role of a gorilla at a boys birthday party. Thus begins her quest for a costume, researching the role, traveling to the party and living up to expectations.

Cute, with a good amount of humour, Annabel is a spunky heroine for the beginning reader set. The scenes of her practicing the roll are quite amusing. The only thing that would improve this work would be for the illustrations to be updated as they are starting to feel a little dated. (The book was published in 1999).
