The Paper Dolls
Julia Donaldson, Rebecca Cobb
The Paper Dolls is a stunning, lyrical story of childhood, memory and the power of imagination from Julia Donaldson, the author of The Gruffalo, and award-winning illustrator Rebecca Cobb.
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 . . .
The Paper Dolls is a beautiful and evocative story from Julia Donaldson and Rebecca Cobb, the bestselling creators of The Everywhere Bear.
A picture book that seems simple but gets richer every time you look at it . . . Cobb's illustrations capture the joy of childhood; between them, she and the Children's Laureate have made a book that works like magic. -- Nicolette Jones * The Sunday Times * The Paper Dolls was picked as a top summer read in the Metro. The selectors included George Hanratty from Tales on Moon Lane bookshop and Katherine Woodfine from BookTrust. * metro.co.uk * Rebecca Cobb's beautifully drawn and colourful illustrations are absolutely charming . . . I don't want to spoil the ending, but I can say that the inherent message of the story, that nothing is truly destroyed once it becomes a memory, left us both feeling surprisingly contented! * muffandteacake.co.uk *
