Product description

A string of paper dolls go on a fantastical adventure through the house and out into the garden. They soon escape the clutches of the toy dinosaur and the snapping jaws of the oven-glove crocodile, but then a very real pair of scissors threatens. A stunning, rhythmical story of childhood, memory and the power of imagination from the author of THE GRUFFALO, and new illustrating talent Rebecca Cobb.

Customer reviews

By Diana Boswarva 08 Oct 2013 5

This is a lovely book for mothers and young girls everywhere. The illustrations are lovely and the narrative discusses memories in such a way that this book could be useful when discussing the death of a loved one.

My 26 month old daughter loves this book. It is highly recommended.
