"Did you ever think the dolls are alive?" So wonders young Kate about the dolls in her dollhouse. Martin and Godwin have created just that story. Unbeknownst to their owners, The Dolls and The Funcrafts seek adventure and find lost family members; have run-ins with Captain, the cat; and discover friendship in unusual places. With skilled narration, Lynn Redgrave does for the recording what illustrator Brian Selznick does for the book. She differentiates the sensibilities of characters from an older age from those of the plastic generation. The distinct tones, understated comments, and refined speech of the older dolls are set off from the no-nonsense, direct speech of the newer ones in this whimsical fantasy. A.R.
