As the youngest in her family, Dory really wants attention, and more than anything she wants her brother and sister to play with her. But she’s not too much of a baby for them, so she’s left to her own devices—including her wild imagination and untiring energy. Her siblings may roll their eyes at her childish games, but Dory has lots of things to do: outsmarting the monsters all over the house, moving into the closet, and exacting revenge on her sister’s favorite doll. And when they really need her, daring Dory will prove her bravery, and finally get exactly what she has been looking for.
This book has been compared to Junie B Jones and for good reason. It’s a transitional book, one that is good for those just starting to read larger chapter books. Dory is a little girl who so badly wants to play with her older siblings but they just find her annoying. It’s a charming story that is made for laughing and remembering what it was to use your imagination for everything and getting into heaps of trouble! I’d say this is a great book for kids aged 6-9 depending on their reading ability. It was cute and fun to read.
I give it a 3 out of 5
