Praise

Praise for Dory Fantasmagory

* "This inventive child is irresistible...Charming, funny and true to life." —Kirkus Reviews, starred review

* "Hanlon effectively uses many childlike pencil drawings and word balloons interspersed with a good mix of short and long sentences in brief, episodic chapters full of Dory’s hilarious adventures…readers will laugh at her entertaining antics.” – SLJ, starred review

“ Time spent with Dory is time well spent.”– PW , starred review

"Perfection of tone, plot, pacing, art, you name it. Author Abby Hanlon has taken a universal childhood desire (the wish of the younger sibling for the older ones to play with them) and turned it into a magnificent epic fantasy complete with sharp-toothed robbers, bearded fairy godmothers, and what may be the most realistic 6-year-old you’ll ever meet on a page. In a word, fantastico." —SLJ Fuse 8 Blog

"“This book has everything going for it: A throbbing heart at its center …humor in spades and charm to spare...this is one of the best children’s books I’ve seen all year.”—Kirkus Reviews blog
