Review: Dotty by Erica S. Perl

DottyIt’s Ida’s first day of school. She carries her new lunch box and a long, blue string with her special friend Dotty attached to it. A big, colorfully spotted pal with horns, Dotty just happens to be invisible. On that first day of school, Ida and Dotty find out there are plenty of other imaginary friends in attendance. But as the year passes and fewer and fewer imaginary friends come to class, Ida begins to wonder if Dotty is welcome at school anymore . . .

Perceptive and warmly funny, with charming art from exciting illustrator Julia Denos, Dotty is a celebration of the power of friendship and imagination.

Received from the publisher for review.

This one gets four stars.  It was an utterly adorable story!  Within its few pages it brings you from smiles to sadness and back again to a happy, tender smile.  It was masterfully written with beautiful illustrations by Julia Denos.  This incredibly fun book would make an ideal gift for the imaginative child.  I very highly recommend it!

★★★★ = Really Liked It
