Thanks to the @kidlitexchange network for the review copy of this book – all opinions are my own.
This eccentric little book arrived in the mail last week and I had planned on reading one chapter each night with my 5 and 7 year old girls; however they immediately fell in love with Dory and begged me to read chapter after chapter until we turned the last page a few days later. They even convinced me to order the other three books in this series – they love it so much!
Dory is the picture perfect example of that one quirky friend you have who says the weirdest things and always makes you laugh. For us, that happens to be Miss I. I think she could relate to Dory on many levels, and seeing the little sketches throughout the book helped her visualize this silly little character. Dory’s crazy antics and witty, random comments were hysterical; and also maybe not the best idea before bedtime. The giggles were in full force as we followed Dory and her friends (real and imaginary) through an adventure to find the tooth fairy.
Even though this is the fourth book in the series, we picked up on the characters and story line easily. The format of this chapter book is also very welcoming for grades K-3; with lots of fun doodles to break up each page. We cannot wait to read more about our new friend Dory!
