Synopsis

Read aloud by broadcaster Lauren Laverne, 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.

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 dinosaur and the snapping jaws of the oven-glove crocodile, but then a very real pair of scissors threatens . . .
