Rate this:
The 100-year-old Doll family--beautifully crafted china dolls passed down through four generations of girls in one American family--meet their new neighbors, the Funcrafts, a doll family made completely of plastic and delivered straight from the factory shelves.
Annabelle Doll is eight years old--she has been for over a hundred years. Not a lot has happened to her, cooped up in the dollhouse, with the same doll people, day after day, year after year...until the Funcrafts move in. Now Annabelle has a friend. Sure she's made entirely of plastic and she's living in the scariest room in the house, but she's an adventurer, and after a hundred years of boredom, that's just what Annabelle needs.

Lynn Redgrave's wry delivery makes this a fabulous listen--I laughed out loud in the car several times--and Ann Martin's text about an old family of dolls passed down through generations meeting, trying to understand, and befriending a new, plastic family of dolls called The Funcrafts (when their owner's 4-yr-old sister gets her own dollhouse) is classic. Very fun listen for adults, kids, or whole families, etc., especially if you have a tendency to like books like The Borrowers and The Indian in the Cupboard (but not necessarily dolls--never played with 'em myself, and I hugely enjoyed it).
