Dory is back and this time she's ready to start a new school year and make a real friend. Dory's older siblings, Luke and Violet, have convinced Dory that it's time to leave her imaginary friend, Mary, at home for the new school year and leave her crazy imaginings behind. On the first day of school she meets Rosabelle, a girl with an imagination as big as Dory's, but they don't hit it off right away. When she and Rosabelle bump into each other at the park their imaginations collide and send them on an adventure. Now if only Dory could convince her brother and sister that Rosabelle exists and that she has finally made a real true friend! Adorable illustrations add a lot of charm and will entertain young readers. Look for Dory Fantasmagory if you want to start at the beginning. (Grades 2-4 School Library Journal)
