Horn Book Review

The long-awaited fourth Doll People book is finally here, with a new illustrator, as Helquist takes over for Brian Selznick. Still in black and white, the illustrations are again abundant and amusing, with the depictions of the antique Doll family (porcelain and fragile) and the carefree Funcraft family (plastic and indestructible) hewing closely to Selznick's original creations. Annabelle Doll and best friend Tiffany Funcraft have just returned from their most recent adventure (The Runaway Dolls) when they are thrust into another dangerous situation: the doll families are packed in a box and mistakenly put on a boat headed for England. Fans will be intrigued by the switcheroo of personalities: adventure-loving Tiffany suddenly becomes terrified and timid when three of the dolls (including her dad and brother) fall out of a viewing hole she made in the box and disappear; cautious Annabelle realizes it's up to her to find the fortitude to lead the search for the missing dolls. Though it's not necessary to have read the first three entries, it's the stalwart fans who will be cheering "Doll power!" the loudest as these beloved characters prove once again they can all work together despite their very different personalities, the Dolls and the Funcrafts combining their traits of caution and courage in the best way possible. jennifer m. brabander (c) Copyright 2015.
