Relive all of your favorite Annie moments in this easy-to-read story, illustrated with color photos from the movie.

Annie is a foster kid who's had a hard knock life ever since her parents left her as a baby. She doesn't think she'll ever escape her mean foster mom, Miss Hannigan, but everything's about to change. Wanting to improve his image ahead of the election campaign, New York mayoral candidate Will Stacks takes Annie in. Stacks soon discovers that Annie's sun-will-come-out-tomorrow outlook just might be the thing he needs in his life.

This modern retelling stars some of Hollywood's biggest names, including Jamie Foxx (Will Stacks), Cameron Diaz (Miss Hannigan), Rose Byrne (Grace Farrell), and Academy Award nominated Quvenzhané Wallis (Annie). Director/Producer/Screenwriter Will Gluck has teamed up with producers James Lassiter, Will Smith & Jada Pinkett Smith, Shawn "JAY Z" Carter, Laurence "Jay" Brown, and Tyran "Ty Ty" Smith in this Columbia Pictures movie.
