Dory Fantasmagory book coverby Abby Hanlon
Illustrated beginning chapter book
Interest level: 1-3
Reading level: 3.2
4 out of 5 stars


This is a fun chapter book for young independent readers who are getting into reading longer stories. The short chapters and black and white illustrations that help tell the story will engage young readers.

Dory is the youngest of three children and she is frustrated that her older brother and sister rarely want to include her in their play. To compensate, Dory has an incredible imagination that turns her sadness at not being included into fun hijinks that frustrate her siblings and parents.
