What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

Anna and Banana must cook up a solution when her jealousy gets her into some hot water in the sixth book of this “fast-paced, fun, and funny” (Megan McDonald, bestselling author of the Judy Moody series) illustrated chapter book series about the joys and challenges of elementary school friendships.

After watching the contestants on The Batter-Up Bake-Off Show whip up sweet treats, Anna, Isabel, Sadie, and Banana are ready to put their culinary chops to the test. The plan? To make the best-ever cookie recipe for the town library’s bake sale!

There’s only one problem: Isabel and Sadie have started hanging out with a girl named Monica, and suddenly she’s all they can talk about. Anna’s sure she, Sadie, and Isabel are complete as a trio, and winning the bake sale will prove it. But when Monica shows up with Sadie and Isabel for their big baking day things quickly turn from sweet to sour.

Can Anna win back the attention of her two besties, or will she learn that friendship—like cookies—is best when shared?

Who Wrote Anna, Banana, and the Recipe for Disaster

author
Anica Mrose Rissi

Anica Mrose Rissi grew up on an island off the coast of Maine, where she read a lot of books and loved a lot of pets. After college, she moved to New York City, where she worked as a cheesemonger and book editor. She now tells and collects stories, makes up songs on her violin, and eats lots of cheese with her friends in Princeton, New Jersey, where she lives with her dog, Arugula. As a former editor turned full-time writer, Anica has spoken with kids and adults across the country about all stages of the writing process, from ideas and drafting to revisions and beyond.

Anica is the author of the Anna, Banana chapter-book series, the picture books The Teacher’s Pet and Watch Out for Wolf!, and a YA novel, Always Forever Maybe. Her essays have been published by The Writer magazine and the New York Times, and she plays fiddle in and writes lyrics for the electro-country band Owen Lake and the Tragic Loves. Anica tweets about bookish things at @anicarissi, which is also her handle on Instagram. Find out more at anicarissi.com.
