Fans of Junie B. Jones and Ivy and Bean will love this new story about the spunky little rascal with big ideas. The star of Dory Fantasmagory is heading to school. Her older siblings, Luke and Violet, warn her to leave her imaginary friend, Mary, at home-or better yet, leave her whole imagination at home! Dory is determined to behave like a "regular old girl who never gets in trouble," but on her very first day she meets a new friend, a girl whose imagination and style are just about as wild as her own. Now she just has to convince her siblings that she's not making it all up! Filled with plenty of funny pictures, this book bursts with charm and impudence, making this a must-read for the chapter book set.

"Suzy Jackson's narration turns on a dime. At one moment she voices all the angst imaginable as young Dory faces the start of school on the following day and then all her delight as she fawns over the teacher, the coat closet, and Rosabelle, a girl sitting at her table. Dory is a child whose vivid imagination is populated by imaginary friends. As much as her mother, brother, and sister admonish her NOT to take them to school, Jackson's narration is at its richest when Dory has done just that--and involves Rosabelle and her imaginary friends to boot. Jackson's Rosabelle speaks dreamily--princess that she is--and Dory chatters energetically. Should the book be on hand, listeners will delight in the illustrations.
