The breathtakingly beautiful story of one little girl and her five paper dolls.
Julia Donaldson is the outrageously talented, prize-winning author of the world's most-loved picture books and the UK Children's Laureate. Rebecca Cobb is a rising star in children's picture books. Since graduating from Falmouth College of Arts in 2004, Rebecca has illustrated for many clients including The Guardian Guide and The Independent.
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 * The Paper Dolls and The Crocodile Who DIdn't Like Water [and My Big Fat Zombie Goldfish] were all picked as top summer reads in the Metro this week. The selectors included George Hanratty from Tales on Moon Lane bookshop and Katherine Woodfine from Booktrust. * metro.co.uk * A picturebook 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 *
