I know many five to eights have enjoyed the T.V. series around these stories. Here, the indomitable Doll, with her friends, the Little Dressmaker, the White Cat and Dummy, are caught up in six self-contained adventures, ideal for reading aloud. The exploits will be easily identified with by listeners: a picnic: sledging: visits to the Museum and the Fair. Good dialogue and humorous action. I read two of the stories to a reception class who wanted to try the stories themselves. Much better than the usual T.V. spin-off.
