Well written story. My eleven yr. old read it and said that she enjoyed the characters and the adventures. Quick, fun read
When everyone is gone and all is silent, the doll people come alive. The doll people go on adventures and discover other doll people living under the same roof of the owners of all the dolls.
Besides the cute story, this is a gorgeous book, with front and back flaps and the drawings are by Brian Selznick; they make the book really stand out. Brian Selznick went on to write The Invention of Hugo Cabret, so fans of his will treasure this book.
My 9 year old daughter loved this book. She couldnt wait to get book #2. :o)
Passed down from one generation to the next, the Doll family has lived in the same dollhouse, located in the same room of the Palmer family's house, for 100 years. Then the modern, plastic Funcraft family has moved into Kate's little sister's room. It is an interesting plot...dolls that move and are "real" when you leave the room. Didn't every little girl believe that at one time or another?
A good fantasy chapter book for kids about dolls that are actually alive.
Absolutely delightful, wonderful book to read with your child. Wonderful graphics!
This is a great book for kids both very young and old enough to be reading it on their own. I read it to my daughter and we both enjoyed ourselves (trust me that's not always the case with "girl" books for me). This was one that we talked about afterward and looked forward into diving into again. I have some very fond memories of reading time with my little girl and this book series was a big part of those memories. If you're looking for something like that, do yourself a favor pick this one up.
