Praise for Dory Fantasmagory: Head in the Clouds

"Many series for fledgling readers feature mischievous girls and their grade-school exploits: Ramona Quimby, Junie B. Jones and Clementine, to name a few. Others, like the Magic Treehouse books, send children on fantasy adventures. Abby Hanlon's marvelous Dory Fantasmagory series, featuring the plucky heroine Dory, also known as Rascal, combines the two . . . There is, as always, much to laugh over." --The New York Times

"The family dynamics are entirely believable, and both adult and child readers can appreciate the humor." --Kirkus Reviews
