A string of paper dolls go on a fantastical adventure through the house and out into the garden. They soon escape the clutches of the toy disaur and the snapping jaws of the oven-glove crocodile, but then a very real pair of scissors threatens ...The Paper Dolls is a stunning, rhythmical story of childhood, memory and the power of imagination from Julia Donaldson, the author of The Gruffalo, and illustrating talent Rebecca Cobb. This edition comes in a handy board book format for even the littlest of hands. Also by Julia Donaldson and Rebecca Cobb: It's a Little Baby There's an Owl in my Towel
