The Meanest Doll In The World

Once upon a time there were two dolls. Their names were Annabelle and Tiffany. Annabelle was a doll that was made of fine china. Tiffany was a Funcrafts doll. She had snap on clothes and could be dipped in water while Annabelle couldn't. They lived in the same house ,but had different owners. Annabelle's owner was Kate Palmer, and Tiffany's owner was Nora Palmer. Kate was 9 years old and in the 4th Grade. Her sister, Nora was 5 years old and in Kindergarten. The two dolls had many adventures together. Annabelle and Tiffany were the two main characters in this story. Annabelle was a doll that thought about things and asked many questions. Tiffany, on the other hand, was one that liked to take chances and do things quickly. They were best friends! A conflict in this story was when the main characters got lost in Kate and Nora's school. Another conflict was when Annabelle and Tiffany went into the wrong book bag at the school and ended up in the wrong house meeting a very mean doll named Princess Mimi. The last conflict was that people couldn't see the dolls moving or they would get Doll State (a temporary or permanent state when they can no longer move). The way they resolved these conflicts was by defeating Princess (Mean) Mimi. She got PDS (Permanent Doll State) when Nora saw her jumping from the bookcase. The way they got out of the school was by climbing back into Kate's book bag. The way they could move without being seen was by moving during the night and when no one was home. My opinion of the book is that it is very detailed and creative. It was very cool how the dolls had adventures and stuff. It's like they were real people. I would recommend this book to others.


Just the name Lynn Redgrave brings to mind the resonant sound of her inimitable voice. It is used to full advantage in this thoroughly satisfying reading, especially in the voice of Mean Mimi who sees herself as the Queen of All Dolls. As they go, aspirations are fine, but Mean Mimi does carry them to extremes. In this enchanting sequel to The Doll People, those rascals Annabelle Doll and Tiffany Funcraft are up to mischief once more. As luck would have it the pair find themselves in Kate's backpack on their way to school. This is an adventure! Once out of the backpack they discover they are in a very strange world. Putting their initial trepidation aside they decide to explore this new territory. Not a good idea because when they try to go home they find wind up in the wrong house! The up side of this is that they make many new doll friends. The down side is that they also run into the formidable Mean Mimi. Now, just how are this adventurous duo ever going to find their way home and the safety of their doll house? Listen and see. - Gail Cooke

Highly reccomended

We really enjoyed this book in my household! I thought it was a terrific children's book that even I, the adult, thoroughly enjoyed. I had tried to read it to the kids one chapter a night, but was always begged to continue after a chapter had ended. Too often I caved in and read another, because I wanted to know how what happened next too. I thought the illustrations were excellent, and I know the kids sure loved looking at the pictures! If you haven't read the first book, don't worry. We certainly didn't, and had no trouble understanding or enjoying this wonderful book!

My daughter loved it

My daughter, who is 8 year old and an avid reader, says that the dolls books are by far the best books she has ever read (and she has been reading since she was 4)and she loves them, and she is hoping that there will be more written.

The Meanest Doll in the World

This is a colorful book! It is great for parents to read to their kids. And for kids to read themselves. I am halfway through the book and I think it is just as good as 'The Doll People'. Ann M. Martin has also written excellent books for 10-14 years olds, such as A Corner of the Universe and Belle Teal! Read them as soon as possible!
