A string of paper dolls go on a fantastical adventure through the house and out into the garden. They soon escape the clutches of the toy dinosaur and the snapping jaws of the oven-glove crocodile, but then a very real pair of scissors threatens . . . The Paper Dolls is a stunning, rhythmical story of childhood, memory and the power of imagination from Julia Donaldson, the author of The Gruffalo, and illustrating talent Rebecca Cobb. This edition comes in a handy board book format for even the littlest of hands. Also by Julia Donaldson and Rebecca Cobb: It's a Little Baby There's an Owl in my Towel

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.
The Sunday Times||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!
