I read this aloud to my daughter when she was sick. She loved it. I thought it was OK. The basic story is about a girl receiving an antique dollhouse for her birthday when she really wanted a bike. She reacts with a bad attitude and ingratitude, and though she plays with the dollhouse, she makes the dolls be mean to each other. Her family life also spins out of control. Is there a connection? One day she wakes up to find herself IN the dollhouse and at the dolls' mercy. What will happen? I won't tell you, except that she doesn't seem to learn the big lessons I'd like her to learn, like how to be grateful for a gift, how to treat people and things. It was a quick read, and kept me interested, but not the greatest story ever told. I really need to read a grown-up book!!!
