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.
A picture book 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 *
The Paper Dolls was picked as a top summer read in the Metro. The selectors included George Hanratty from Tales on Moon Lane bookshop and Katherine Woodfine from BookTrust. * metro.co.uk *
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 *
