Schneider Family Book Award. The 2015 Cybils WINNERS! Dory has one foot in reality and the other in the world of her vivid imagination.

The 2015 Cybils WINNERS!

So when it’s time for school to start, her brother and sister warn her that it’s time to leave her imagination at home–she needs to make a real, live friend or else forever be a “weirdo.” Nervous as she is, Dory goes to school only to be surprised and delighted to meet a girl in her class named Rosabelle–a princess who lives in a castle and has a pet dragon! As Dory does her best to win over her new friend, including making plans to escape the clutches of an evil witch, her siblings doubt the whole thing. Can such a friend really be real? In her sequel to Dory Fantsmagory, Hanlon has created a hilariously unpredictable story about friendship, and captured the true nature of kids in a compelling way.
