Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy Book I really enjoyed this book. I am 49 yrs old and do not particularly like dolls but it was fun to read. Take it to bed and cheer yourself up with this nicely bound, illustrated, large print book. Then give it to a child or friend or seniors home.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simply Delightful! The Doll Family has lived at 26 Wetherby Lane for 100 years being passed down from mother to daughter all these years. Forty-five years ago Auntie Sarah simply disappeared and no one speaks of her anymore but Annabelle Doll finds Auntie Sarah's secret journal and decides she will leave the house and start to search for her. Along her searches she finds another doll family that has come to live with the youngest daughter of the family. The Dolls now have some fun neighbours and Annabelle finds a friend with the Funcraft Family. This book was pure delight! It was very reminiscent to me of The Borrowers, though the little people here are dollhouse dolls. The characters are simply charming and this is really a wonderful, fun, adventurous story to read. Brian Selznick's illustration bring the characters and setting to life as they decorate every third or forth page and sometimes the text stops for a whole two page spread illustration. Highly recommended for Grades 4 to 6, or as a read aloud for youngers. I wish I had daughters to read this too, but I, who am well past Grade 6 age, loved the story and will read the next two books in the series.

Editorial Reviews

"Martin and Godwin not only set up a realistic doll world but also provide a credible mystery....The authors add a wickedly funny touch with the introduction of the Funcrafts, a dollhouse family meant to placate Kate''s little sister, who''s always messing with the Dolls....The story gets a wonderful boost from Brian Selznick''s pencil drawings, which include charming endpapers. He catches every bit of humor, especially when he''s drawing those Funcrafts."
