"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."
