Doll people is a fantastic book that explores the adventures of Annabelle the doll and her secret life. Annabelle keeps us in suspense as she dabbles in some dangerous business and threatens her own "permanent doll state."

I literally could not put this put down as I read it. I have always been a huge fan of Ann Martin, but this collaboratively written novel is an excellent new tale. It enlightened me to a new style of writing that I had never read from Ann Martin before (I read the whole babysitters series). I loved the clever use of personified toys and feel like so many of my girls would really enjoy reading it. After the movie Toy Story, I think children's imaginations were heightened even more than before to the idea of toys leading a secret life. I always loved dolls as a child and feel like this book. would have really intrigued me.

NSAndrew Liebergen Here is a simple quesiton, is this a story you could use with the whole class? Is this a gender biased or specific book? I don't know the answers, but wanted to throw that thought out there. Would boys be interested in this book? Or shouldn't it matter?
