doryfantasmagory.jpgDory Fantasmagory (Dial Books for Young Readers, 2014) by Abby Hanlon is fantasy in the mind of a six-year-old.

Dory's older siblings want her to leave them alone! They call her Rascal and a baby and tell her to go away. But Dory keeps asking questions...of her siblings...and her imaginary friends. Her siblings make a plan to teach her "not be such a baby," but it backfires in a great way.

Readers young and old will enjoy the humor in text and in pictures in this book. Oh, and here's the author's definition for fantasmagory - "a dream-like state where real life and imagination are blurred together."

Dory Fantasmagory received the 2015 Golden Kite Honor Book Award for Fiction. Woo Hoo!

Author Abby Hanlon is also the author/illustrator of Ralph Tells a Story. Read how Abby herself was an imaginative kid here.
