About Dory Dory Black Sheep
Dory the rascal turns learning to read into a hilarious adventure through the power of imagination
Ever since Dory met Rosabelle, a real true friend whose imagination and high spirits match her own, school has been pretty good. But now the class is learning to read, and it’s proving to be a challenge for Dory. While Rosabelle can read chapter books in her head, Dory is stuck with baby books about a happy little farm. Dory wishes for a potion to turn her into a reader but things don’t go as planned. Suddenly, a naughty little girl who looks an awful lot like Dory’s imaginary nemesis, Mrs. Gobble Gracker, shows up. And a black sheep leaves the pages of the farm book to follow Dory to school. It really needs her help–this seems like a job for a superhero! And it would help if she knew how to read.
In her third book, Dory the rascal takes reluctant reading to new heights with a story that is as one-of-a-kind and hilarious as she is.

My Thoughts on Dory Dory Black Sheep
Dory is back for yet another adventure. She is struggling with learning to read. As she gets into books (literally goes into a book), she finds that some of the characters follow her home. Trouble follows Dory around every corner she turns and she has to use her wits and her talent for mischief to fix her world.
My kids adore Dory Fantasmagory and all her adventures. She’s a funny, imaginative character that kids can relate to. With all her imperfections and skewed view of the world, she’s a character that endears herself to the hearts of her readers. Black and white pictures are sprinkled liberally throughout the book, which make it an entertaining book for growing readers. It’s a fun and quick read that kids can appreciate and laugh over. It’s perfect for kids that aren’t quite ready for Diary of a Wimpy Kid.
