This was my favorite of the Dorrie books -- it's a shame they don't have a jacket image on hand, because it's gorgeously intricate hippie-60s illustration, as is the interior.

The librarian's assistant (not the librarian, but the librarian's ASSISTANT) pulled me aside when I went to check one out for about the hundredth time, SIGHED HEAVILY, and instructed me to pick another "kind" of book from now on

An oldie but goodie early reader series that's also fun to read aloud to younger readers. Especially liked by girls (who gravitate toward the covers), but boys generally like Dorrie's bumbling and catastrophic flubs, too, when they pick up the books.

One of my all-time favorite series when I was a kid. I just recently remembered it. The illustrations weren't high art or anything, but really fun to look at, and the stories were fun.
