Follow along with Dora and her friend Tom as they turn Dora's story into Dora's Book. The methods may be old-fashioned, but the book turns out beautifully--just like Grandma Molly's homemade strudel. Michelle Edwards's charming story and illustrations are sure to appeal to book lovers of all ages.


Edwards' simple descriptions and cheerful  pen and watercolor illustrations take the reader step by step through the old-fashioned production of a handmade book. Though the story's instructional values are not clear, it is not a dry exercise. Dora has her own likable quirkiness and believable affection for Tom and her other friends. This is an appealing introduction to the art of printing.  Booklist
