Dory Fantasmagory

Publisher: Faber & Faber

Review

Six-year-old Dory is the youngest in her family. They all call her Rascal and her older siblings always tell her she’s too little to play with them. Luckily, Dory has a huge imagination and enough friends to play with her, even if no one else can see them.

But sometimes Dory confuses what is real and what is imaginary, like when her sister Violet makes up the scary Mrs Gobble Gracker, who steals baby girls and is looking for Dory. Convinced that Mrs Gobble Gracker has come to take her away, Dory is on a mission to save herself.

This is a great book to read aloud and share with beginning readers. It is funny for readers young and old, and has beautiful and engaging illustrations that bring Dory’s wild imagination to life.
