The Paper Dolls by Julia Donaldson and Rebecca Cobb

The Paper Dolls
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.

This is the new release by popular children's author Julia Donaldson. I loved this book as soon as I saw the front cover and when I read it, I was even more in love with it.

The story is about a set of paper dolls that a child and her mother made, a lovely tradition in those old fashioned crafts to do on a rainy afternoon. It is a lovely book that will ignite any little (or big) girls imagination and as happens at the end of book, a pastime that can be passed from mother to daughter.

It is written in Julia Donaldson's legendary rhyme and repetition that will soon be imprinted into the readers brain, allowing little ones to join in with the story telling. The illustrations are drawn by Rebecca Cobb and look to be crayon illustrations that add to the nostalgic appeal of the book.

I would recommend this book as the perfect book for a mother and daughter to share and to find themselves a new pastime to while away the hours on a rainy afternoon.

I received this book through the Amazon Vine Programme.
