There are 3 books in this series and my elementary school age daughter absolutely loves them. After she read the first one she begged for the others. She even recomends them to her friends.

I read the first book in this series, The Doll People, to my daughter. The second book, The Meanest Doll in the World. we read together. And the third, Runaway Dolls, she read on her own. She just loved this series of books. It's light reading but thoroughly enjoyable.

What happens at your house when your on vacation. In this book the dolls party. The main character decides to runway into the big outdoors to save her little sister from being returned to the doll maker. (a little complicated here) She and her friends end up in a department story and have to figure out how to get out and home. Wheww!

The Palmer's are on a two week vacation and the dolls have the run of the house. Just before they left a parcel arrived and was thrown on the couch. Annabelle and Tiffany examine it only to find that it is Annabelle's long lost little sister. However, the adults believe no such thing so Annabelle decides to let her sister out and runaway to protect her from disappearing again and, of course, Tiffany comes along. Little do the girls know that their brothers have been spying on them and follow them. Thus begins a wild adventure for the dolls as they get lost in the woods, hitch a ride on a wagon, end up downtown and eventually in the toy department of a large department store.This is the most exciting of the three books. The dolls find themselves in one spot of trouble after another and the characters are just adorable. This book is so much fun to read. Again, the illustrations are half of the enjoyment of the book. Selznick's illustrations are gorgeous and this book starts with a several page long illustrative wordless narrative similar to parts of The Invention of Hugo Cabret. I highly recommend this series to young girls (and their mothers!).

This is such a funny, adventurous book. My favorite characters are Tiffany Funcraft, Tilly, and Annabelle doll. I recommend it to all kids as it is a fabulous book. I love the pictures as well. They really help tell the story!
