KIRKUS REVIEW

If there is one thing Doll Face loves, it's a good party. With her Tippi Hedren hairdo and her cherry-red lips, she plays hostess to her friends Plate, Fork, Cup, Spoon, Knife, and Teapot. Chair and Balloon are late additions to the festivities, once they agree to help Doll Face track down some music (in the form of Little Red Piano) and the illusive Sweet Cake. Conrad, a well-known author of YA books and, recently, The Tub Grandfather (not reviewed), gives everyone a good time with this slight story, and Selznick's funny, color-saturated illustrations set just the right mood. The retro-looking Doll Face is particularly resplendent, with her feet turned off at odd, twisted angles, and her hilariously inanimate way of eating and drinking. Funny in a subtle, knowing way. (Fiction/Picture book. 3-7)
