|aSchool has been pretty good so far. Dory has made a real true friend whose imagination and high spirits as are big as her own. Reading is proving to be a challenge, but having a loose tooth makes her feel special. Suddenly, Mrs. Gobble Gracker, Dory's imaginary enemy, starts appearing in unlikely places. Dory and her friend can only imagine that she s there to prevent the Tooth Fairy from visiting. This calls for some heroic plans worthy of this high-spirited and comical character who is one-of-a-kind.
Dory turns learning to read into a hilarious adventure through the power of imagination--perfect for fans of Junie B. Jones and Ivy and Bean Ever since Dory met Rosabelle, a real true friend whose imagination and high spirits match her own, school has been pretty good. But now the class is learning to read, and it's proving to be a challenge for Dory. While Rosabelle can read chapter books in her head, Dory is stuck with baby books about a happy little farm. Dory wishes for a potion to turn her into a reader but things don't go as planned. Suddenly, a naughty little girl who looks an awful lot like Dory's imaginary nemesis, Mrs. Gobble Gracker, shows up. And a black sheep leaves the pages of the farm book to follow Dory to school. It really needs her help--this seems like a job for a superhero And it would help if she knew how to read. In her third book, Dory takes reluctant reading to new heights with a story that is as one-of-a-kind and hilarious as she is. "An especially wonderful book to share with reluctant readers...I can't imagine a book more calculated to reinforce the power of reading and becoming a reader than Dory Dory Black Sheep. It is a true triumph." --Publishers Weekly ShelfTalker "Hanlon has a winning way with the story's characters (real and imaginary) and dialogue." --Booklist
