Thanks again for using our Bookmatch service. I've had a good time
thinking of some fun reads that are a little like The Doll People. Here are a few suggestions:
DiCamillo, Kate. Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane.
Edward Tulane, a cold-hearted and proud toy rabbit, loves only himself until he is separated from the little girl who adores him and travels across the country, acquiring new owners and listening to their hopes, dreams, and histories.
Cassedy, Sylvia. Behind the Attic Wall.
In the bleak, forbidding house of her great-aunts, neglected
twelve-year-old orphan Maggie hears ghostly voices and finds magic that awakens in her the capacity to love and be loved.
DiCamillo, Kate. The Tale of Desperaux.
The adventures of Desperaux Tilling, a small mouse of unusual talents, the princess that he loves, the servant girl who longs to be a princess, and a devious rat determined to bring them all to ruin.
Ibbotson, Eva. Island of the Aunts.
As they get older, several sisters decide that they must kidnap children and bring them to their secluded island home to help with the work of caring for an assortment of unusual sea creatures.
Norton, Mary. The Borrowers.
Miniature people who live in an old country house by borrowing things from the humans are forced to emigrate from their home under the clock.
White, E.B. Stuart Little.
The adventures of the debonair mouse Stuart Little as he sets out in the world to seek out his dearest friend, a little bird who stayed a few days in his family's garden.
